We'd paid more than the e8 price of this trip, for a 'pint' the previous evening, so this train... read more

I waited awhile before reviewing the "train". It is a great way to see Notre Dame which I highly recommend seeing. It is beautiful inside and out. You can stay as long as you like there unless it's late in the day and the train...More

We caught this from the old port. It's like something from a kid's TV show. There are a couple of different trips, we did the one to the basilique - Notre Dame De La Garde. It takes about 20 minutes and takes you through streets...More

Thanks for the tourist trip on the petit train a few days ago. It was good, apart from one thing - this was the stop at Notre-Dame De La Garde - this spoilt the tour for me. Up until then the trip had been in...More

This little toad train took us on a very interesting trip, we went on circuit 1 which took us to Notre Dame de la guarde. It was spoken in several languages so was easily understood

Enjoyed our trip on Le Petit Train in Marseille (route 1), and we felt it was really good value. €8 per adult for the round trip (€4 for under 12s), with a stop at Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde and regular return trains allowing you...More

The train (which is really a small truck pulling open air carriages) leaves from the harbour and drives around the seafront and up to the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. It is a great drive up the very windy and extremely steep streets and provides...More

We were on a cruise and had little time. The train gaves a city tour on the way to Notre Dame and it's wonderful views. Great value.

Regarding parking near the train I would not know. Marseille in fact has a bad reputation, just like all the port cities. Regarding traffic, I do not think you'll be stuck.

Circuit 1 of the Petit Train is the circuit that goes to Notre Dame de la Garde. You can hop off and hop on at Notre Dame only. There are no other stops on Circuit 1. The fare last month was 8 Euros per person.
