We took a mini train from the centre of the port of Marseille and up to the church of Notre Dame de la Garde. The tour was in various languages and took us around the main points. Once we arrived we were able to leisurely walk around the cathedral and go inside to view the architecture, light candles, pray, and... More

We went there after lunch and took the little train/tram from the harbour. It was very convenient to reach. Once you arrive, take in the magnificent view of the city. You can use the same train/tram ticket to get back.

We joined the red tour bus (2 hour) trip organised by the office de tourism close to the Vieux Port and the basilica is the piece de resistance, hence the 40 minute stop there. The basilica was mildly interesting but the views from the top are to die for.

Marseille tour is quite extensive. We are looking at Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde apart from the harbor and the view from a Basilique lookout liked church Cathédrale La Major.

We visited the Basilique as part of a day in port on a cruise hoiday. We took the little train from the old port which took about 4o minutes to get to the church.This journey was very pleasant and we took in some lovely views and the commentary helped. with some interesting information. As someone with limited mobility on stairs,... More

I really like the church for its view and also the architecture. However the climbing part was really too tired by walking. I came here twice, in the morning and in the sunset. The sunset scene was so beautiful just like movies that we normally see.

One of he many stunning cathedrals in France. It's a nice walk up the hill from the old port (about 30 minutes) and then I nice walk down to the Corniche. The views are great from the top and the cathedral doesn't disappoint.

If you are tired, take the little train. If you want the real experience of a progressive discovery, climb the steps all the way to the top of the hill to reach the basilica. And select a day when the mistral wind is blowing away all the humidity and pollution, you will gain a perfectly clear sky and view. The... More
