The Ice-Cream Queen of Marseille

When I'm in Marseille on a hot sunny day (and there are plenty of those at this time of year), I always make a beeline for Le Glacier du Roi. Tucked away on a square in the corner of Marseille's Old Town, this minuscule ice cream parlour makes up for style for what it lacks in space. It's dominated by a shocking pink wickerwork peacock chair and a huge, low-slung chandelier made of transparent Murano glass (pictured above, with the owner, Florence Bianchi). More to the point, it makes the best Italian gelati in town, as well as a range of other irresistible frozen confections. Click here to read more.
