Lollipop Records is not just a music store. It’s not just a cafe/bar. It’s not just a cool shop to buy hip rocker & punk t-shirts. It’s not just a small gallery space to feature local artists. It’s not just a venue for the occasional early evening free show. It’s ALL of these things and more. Those who frequent Lollipop are rockers and punks who support of the local music scene. A prerequisite for rockers and punkers wanting to know more about the local scene.

Château d’If

For any bookworm who read Alexandre Dumas’ novel, The Count of Monte Cristo, Château d’If is a must. A short ferry ride from Vieux Port, it is located on the island of If. Built as a fortress in the 16th century, later it became a feared and infamous prison (mainly for political and religious prisoners); it’s now open for tours. For those uninterested in books or history, the island offers beautiful views of Marseille and the sea. For a small fee, you can tour the prison, the island, and museum.

L'Estaque

recommendation by bon-vivant

natural

Marseille consists of several smaller villages, one of which is l’Estaque. This small fishing district has beautiful views, and walking around here for a day is worth it! Many impressionists and post-impressionists spent time living and working in this district, most notably Paul Cézanne. While here, it's crucial to stop at a small stand to buy a dozen panisse discs. Panisse are chickpeas that are ‘mashed’ together, rolled into a log, sliced into discs, & fried in olive oil. Best when eaten hot!
