Shopping's golden triangle in Marseille!
From the Centre Bourse escalators, the dense crowd on the Rue St Fé looks like a compact block. This pedestrian street, one of the only ones in Marseille, contains most of the most famous brands: Galeries Lafayette, ZARA, Célio, H&M... etc. But there are also jewellery shops and leisure shops. The Rue St Fé, as the locals describe it, is both one of the city's most famous commercial arteries, but it is also where young people gather Saturday afternoon. Quite a symbol!
The Centre Bourse, for its part, has just been given a new look. The facade of this building, which has a very "seventies" look and which has become a large greyish bunker over the years, has finally undergone a makeover. The shopping center hosts many boutiques, especially fashion boutiques, but also the FNAC, Galeries Lafayette, Claire's or Go Sport....
The Rue de Rome is the street of fashion at affordable prices. Both girls and not-so-young ladies flock to the many shoe, clothing and accessories stores that offer trendy items at unbeatable prices. The rue de Rome also contains the last traditional shops such as Le Père Blaize, a herbalist' shop opened in 1815 in a small perpendicular alley.
Be careful, the shops on Saint-Ferréol Street are closed on Sundays.
