Le Panier
Marseille's oldest neighborhood is constantly changing. Though largely destroyed by Hitler, artists were drawn to the area by cheap rent and a creative atmosphere. A walk through the romantic streets of pastel-colored buildings is quite lovely.

Cours Julien
Cours Julien is the area in which lots of the city's live music venues are located. French hip-hop is big in Marseille, but you'll see concerts of all types of music there, even reggae. Ache de Cuba is a fun, small jazz club.
