Beautiful Basilica which sits atop a hill overlooking the city, offers wonderful views. The nautical theme inside is interesting. Returning mariners donated model ships, which hang from the ceiling, in thanks for a safe voyage. We took Le Petit Train from the port area up the hill (a fun and unique ride, it makes only one stop - here at... More

We got there on foot even though there's a bus service, but it was worth it. The inside of the basilica is like nothing I've ever seen. The view from the top is breathtaking!

Whether you're religious or not, this Cathedral is well worthy of a visit. The building itself is beautiful and the interior is lush without being over-extravagant. The views are absolutely tremendous. Far reaching 360 degs panorama of the city of Marseille and surroundings including the nearby islands. There are various "access options" and many people have posted the availability of... More

The inside was nothing special, just like every other church in Europe, but the architecture on the outside and the views were great. Come here for the sunset, it is truly beautiful. There are walkways around the whole church that allow you to see over the whole city and the islands near it.

We called here whilst on a tour of Marseilles; this was undoubtedly the highlight. Set high on a rock overlooking the city, affording consequent good views of the area and the bay, the church is a huge edifice kept in beautiful order. The outside is outstanding but the real spectacle is the interior with it's amazing decoration and furbishings. If... More
