Les Terrasses du Port

In May 2014 a new shopping experience opened its doors. Les Terrasses du Port, a waterfront shopping mall, is ideally located north of the port and is a unique building complex full of shops, restaurants and a fitness park. Shop for everything under the sun, under one roof.


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.
