Awesome views and beautiful structure

Even though it was a chilly day in Marseille, this was worth the visit. High views of all around. Cathedral is beautiful. Lots to explore!

if you come to Marseille and don't have time to "Monter void Notre Dame", just postpone and come when you have time

The visit took place on Sunday afternoon and it was sunny weather, so there were a lot of people and there was nowhere to parking! Beautiful view of the entire surroundings, the Basillique is open for inspection, a small souvenir shop.

My wife and stayed in a Marseille apartment in the shadows of the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde. Waking up and seeing this beautiful structure every morning felt like I had died and gone to heaven. We walked up the track to the Basilique, taking time out to view the local homes and sites. The views of Marseille and... More

Catch Bus#60 up to Notre Dame costs E1.50 a bargain considering the steep climb. It's a beautiful Church and free to enter. The views over Marseille are fantastic and it's a must see when visiting the area. The waterfront is very very pretty with market stalls and lots of craft in the water. A free ferry boat does the short... More

Took the tut tut train up to it, the long winding streets were very steep. Once up there the views were magical, you could see right across the city. Went inside and was blown away with the architecture. Make sure you go downstairs to the crib it's very peaceful. We found Marseille a lovely city and would definitely go again

We took a side trip from paris on the speed train to Marseille and loved it. Basilique is a must. The church itself is stunning in and outside. You can walk up or drive up. It is a long walk so if you are not in good shape you might jus want to drive up. The views of the city... More

Beautiful day! Great views. Gorgeous interior and exterior of the cathedral. Popular destination especially on a Sunday morning. Fascinating walk up the hill, well worth it!

I'm not young and slightly overweight so I found the walk from the Vieux Port daunting! I managed and the views over Marseille are quite breathtaking. There it was in the bay, France's Alcatraz, the Chateau d'If! I have to admit I had no stamina for the last few steps into the Church! Thankfully there is a bus back down... More
