Place Cours Julien

A morning or afternoon of street art and hipness-till-it-hurts.

Possibly Marseille's hippest spot, the "Cours Ju" is ground zero for urban artists, hipsters, musicians, and boho types. There are scores of shops - specialising in music, film, or rare books, for example - but you can also just have a seat at a sidewalk café and people-watch over a cup of coffee or a pastis. Meanwhile, street artists have surprises to spring at every turn, with elaborate murals, improvised caricatures, or graffiti scrawled across façades. Among the square's most iconic establishments is Oogie Lifestore mixing avant-garde styling with the latest trends in clothes, books, music - plus you can change your look in its salon, grab a drank, even have a photo session. Intense, for sure.
