first time to Marseille this nice basilica is the first impressive thing the eyes are catching and immediately becomes an orientation point. then the curiosity worm starts growing and digging and finally makes the wish come true and bring the eyes up there. and once there… amazing!!! all around.

I am not an emotional person, but this beautiful basilique was a unique experience, with its little boats hanging out of the ceiling, the témoignages to all the boats who have left and never been back. And the view from up there is magical. A definite must!

Excellent Views, well worth the walk up. There is also a bus service back down to the port if you don't want to walk back.

Visited the Notre Dame last week with my sister and we were blown away by the beauty of the place, only disappointment it would be nice to have a outside eating area where you could sit and enjoy the views with a drink.

Got bus 60 to the top of Notre–Dame de La Gard. It's easy to get from the main port and I would not walk it....especially in summer. It's less that €4 return for two people. Amazing views from the top and the cathedral is free.

We used our city pass to get the "petit train" up to the basilica which saved a looooong walk up there and I would highly recommend it. The basilica itself is free to get into and the views of the city are second to none. There are several rooms to see within it and a good shop. Also, there are... More

We had to took a lot of steps but the building and the view are amazing, the cathedral is beautiful inside too. We reached the Basilica with the petite train and the ride was great.

A very short ride from the port, great if you take the trolley train. Once you reach to hill top you can appreciate the cathedral up close. They views of the city are breathtaking. The actual church is very small, but you leave with a real spiritual peace. Worth the trip
