Earlier the quarter considered to be the most criminal area in Marseilles, but now its a popular place to visit.
How to take a walk true the Pannier quarter in Marseille
Ancient buildings of all kinds of architectural styles: Baroque, Renaissance in combination with Gothic elements. And the narrow, muddled streets wagging from side to side resemble to look like wicker basket. In French basket sounds like a pane - thats why by one of the versions the quarter is named Pannier.

How to do?

1. Start a walk from the Old Port in Marseilles, where the old church, the fort and the modern Museum are perfectly combined.
2. Walk along the oldest street in the city and you will find yourself in Mazo Square.
3. Look at the Old Baroque almshouse which has survived after the Second World War and the French Revolution.
3. Then you can walk to the Museum of Old Marseilles. It is located in the Diamond House.
4. After the walk, go to the fish market and buy some fresh Marseille seafood for dinner.
