Took the 60 bus from the old town as we had a 72 hour transport pass. Views are amazing and was free to enter as summer holidays. Well worth the visit.

Stunning architecture, well worth a visit. Also, a lovely cool place when the heat outside is intense. Free entrance too.

You can get there by a shuttle (near port) and amazing views overlooking the city. Stunning historical church- worth the trip!

Built between 1853 and 1864, it is ornamented with coloured marble, murals depicting the safe passage of sailing vessels and superb mosaics. The hilltop gives 360-degree panoramas of the city.

I travelled on an organised excursion from our cruise ship, so cannot comment on other transport options. I will say that the docks of Marseilles are part of the city - unlike in some places where a big cruise ship has to go... More
