"Preserved fish" Top 5 Page for this destination Marseille Favorite Tip by JLBG

Marseille General: 80 reviews and 100 photos


Favorite thing: In the museum, this reconstructed model of amphora, cut by the middle, shows how small fishes were arranged in salt that allowed keeping them edible for several month. It has been done following the remains in actual amphora found in wrecked ships.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
