It’s summer, it’s hot and you have walked a long way in the city (or not). Indulge yourself with a home made ice cream! From the Vieux-Port to Le Panier, Cours Julien and La Pointe Rouge, we have amazing ice cream shops in Marseille. Discover our selection…
Le Glacier du roi on Place de Lenche in Le Panier is located two steps from the Vieux-Port. Enjoy a homemade ice cream on one of the city’s oldest places. You can also take your ice cream away and wander in this emblematic quarter of Marseille. Le Glacier du roi is an old fashion ice cream shop with classic ice creams. We advise you to taste the “navette” flavour (the navette is a typical biscuit of Provence). Its orange blossom flavour is just incredible! Plus a bay window allows you to watch the process of ice cream making.
