La Maison du Pastis

La Maison du Pastis offers 65 different pastis and absinthes. They also have a tasting room which is worth stumbling upon, and then out of. Sample several varieties of liquor, and pick a favourite to bring home as a reminder of the good times had in Marseille.


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.
