Joliette used to be a run-down area where the big ferries come in and out of town, but it’s now part of the biggest regeneration area in Europe and has had lots of funding to build new houses, bars and shops. The star attraction is the new shopping mall, Les Terrasses du Port. All the big brands are here – high street and high-end fashion – but the best part is the roof. It’s a great place to eat or have a drink looking out over the Mediterranean. The other key must-see in this neighbourhood is the Museum of European and Mediterranean Culture (MUCEM). It’s an amazing building to wander through – either to look at the art exhibitions or to have an ice-cream on the roof. Again, it has amazing views. There are lots of lovely restaurants along the seafront and nice bars too. The arts centre, Le Silo, is here too; a great place to take in a concert.
