Anse des Phocéens, Marseille

Ride through the cycle lanes and the traffic to the Plage de l’Anse des Phocéens, which is known locally as “Chez Paulette” because of the beach bar which used to serve the bathers. So a Marseillais could say “I’m going to Paulette’s”, which really meant “I’m going to the beach”.
The Phoenicians are credited by the Roman historian Justin with having founded Massalia or Μασσαλία (ancient Marseille) in the Vth century BC.
