Marseilles off the beaten track
The traffic. The sirens. The noise. Belsunce’s district is not commonly into the guidebooks.Yet it is one of the best vibrant area to visit with a guide. This city neighborhood is home to many 17century baroque style buildings. It also keeps track of outstanding and unknown people who made the Marseilles migration history. Between St Charles rail station and the harbour, many newcomers transit by this area, some of them left, others stayed for their luck or misfortune…I have some good stories to tell, and surprising things to show you.
