Centre Bourse

The Centre Bourse is a massive shopping centre, with about sixty stores and department stores, a stone’s throw away from the Old Port. It is a great place for getting all your shopping done in one place — from fashionable clothing, to cosmetics, to anything else you may possibly fancy.


Marseille’s main shopping areas are in the central and southern parts of town and cater to all tastes, from Côte d’Azur luxury and large department stores to quirky little boutiques and stores. If you want smaller shops then head to the Cours Julien area, which has built up a reputation as an alternative, bohemian quarter. The area is also great for food and antique markets at weekends. Le Panier, Marseille’s oldest neighbourhood, is the best place for local products. Rue des Petits Puits and places des Pistoles are good streets for Provençal pottery and shops selling lavender soap and olive-based goodies.
