I really enjoy the little bit of time I get with you guys each week, don't think twice about it. But when I chatted with this week's Local, it turned out she was going to make my job very easy. So damn it, I'm letting her. "I'm Amelie @hellolaroux, native from the north of France but adopted by Marseille, my new beloved city. I'm a junior graphic designer but also editor, content creator and photographer on the travel blog www.hellolaroux.com.
God knows how Marseille is a such indomitable and rebellions city. Here there are no 'half measures': you love Marseille, or not! But, this is not just a mess, this is a new city who breaking codes that too often stuck her (dirty streets, drug traffic, pollution..). Marseille is an incredible, eclectic city and she's so rich of different cultures.
I dont know yet how many years I'll live here, but I know that I'm feeling well, right now here, to contemplating Mediterranean sea with lavender and pine smell and listening cicadas to sing. I like this idea to living in a city as beautiful as chaotic. There are some beauty that we can't explain. But, I find Marseille, beautiful! Beautiful to be rebellious and different, beautiful to be extravagant. Just beautiful in its own way!
Cheers, Amelie @hellolaroux"

To taste an original ice, go to @glacier_vanille_noire
Their star? A vanilla ice scream, sweet, salt and iodized. Surprising at first, but soooo delicious. Other tastes detonated of ordinary glaciers 🍦
I finish with my best food addresses with burgers of @le_bar_bu.
Everything is homemade and, God, this is absolutely delicious!
It was difficult for me to make a selection as there are places of interest in Marseille. Feel free to follow me

I could not , not to speak of a symbol of Marseille : "Notre Dame de la Garde", called "La Bonne Mère" (the Good Mother) . She dominates the whole city from the top of a hill, and protects Marseilles . In the traditions, she protects fishermen
