Although Marseille has a very old history, World War II has caused much damage to the city. The colorful houses you see especially in the Vieux Port have been rebuilt in accordance with the original after the war. After wandering around this area and seeing the fish market, you can turn your way into the neighborhood of Le Panier. The neighborhood to the north of the harbor is one of the most affected by the bombardment. You should definitely see La Vieille Charité in this region. It is an old nursing home and one of the few buildings that survived World War II with relatively little damage.
