The shops and restaurants seem to cater to tourists, which has it's good side, yet the area feels inauthentic because of that. It's photogenic, architecturally, and worth a stroll on your way to the MuCem.

Excellent tour of Vieux Panier. Enjoyed the old part of Marseille, the small shops, the cafes where we enjoyed a delicious cappachino.

We stayed in an apartment on the edge of the Panier district, and loved meandering through its tiny, winding streets full of charming cafés, bars, shops, and art galleries.

Le Panier is more of an easy stroll than other parts of Marseille. The narrow streets and classic architecture are worth the view, however the some of the "artsy" displays felt a bit forced and for tourist purposes only. There are several cafes and shops...More

May have been great once, but seemed like everything was dedicated to tourists now. Lots of uphill walking, hoping to find something worth making the trek and didn't see it--either in views, restaurants or shops. Very average. Take the Petit Train for tourists and drive...More

Really authentic old quarter of Marseille with lots to see - small winding streets with lots of little shops, bars and restaurants in places you wouldn't at first, expect. A must see.

Go to the Tourist office and pick up a copy of their free walking guide for help in seeing this typically old world area at its best. The routes are marked by coloured lines on the 'trottoir', but they fade away and disappear in places,...More

I think visiting alone during the day would be fine. There were some groups of street artists on some of the corners hanging out and playing music. Otherwise you just wander in and out of artistic little stores and galleries. More

Yes I'd say Le Vieux Port is worthier than Le Panier, walk around it!
