The Canebiere is the iconic street of Marseille. But it's very uneven, some portions are uninteresting, some buildings are being renovated so no shops for the time being. The interesting parts are what's at either end, or parallel to it.

La Canebière is meant to be the equivalent of the Champs-Elysées of Marseille. But it isn't by far. The shops and bars aren't very nice and good looking, plus the street in itself is dirty and not well frequented at nighttime!
This 1 km boulevard was built in 1666 as part of the city's expansion and is situated between the Old Port and the Reformes quarter in Marseille. It derives its name from the industrial cannabis fields near the Old Port as Marseille used to be...More

As a shopping venue, it's OK, but its real value is that it's an easy route to some more interesting places - the Centre de Bourse on one side and the Marche des Capucins on the other - or, at the time we visited, the...More
This a famous street that has been around for centuries in Marseille. It has been the hub of activity for hundreds of years. The closer you are to the Vieux Port the nicer it is. The closer to the Arab market the more varied it...More
I have fallen in love with Marseille. La Canebiere is 'main street' Marseille. Once elegant but now more 'used'. Marseille has gems hidden around every corner, in every nook and cranie. This is not a place for tourists looking for a pristine, serene experience. Nice...More
Ok if you like shops, crowds and expensive items. Very busy area, nothing really special, different or unique, noisy and full of car fumes.
