Bar de la Marine, on the Old Port of Marseille. It’s a glimpse into the long-ago Marseille that has somehow escaped the touristy and upscale transformation of the rest of the area.

This was one of my favorite spots in Marseille, where the Rue d’Aubagne bridge crosses the Cours Lieutaud in the Notre Dame du Mont area. Just to the left is a pedestrian footbridge leading to a set of stairs up to the “quartier des artistes” in the Cours Julien area.
