One of the top attractions for Marseille for both sightseeing and historical tour. The city view was great in a sunny day. I strongly recommend to visit.

The Basilique is situated at an amazing small hill top. There are buses to and fro from the place operated at regular intervals. But the pathway to it is definitely picturesque. Once we reached the top the view was magnificent. One can have pin point view of entire Marseille and it's brilliant. The Basilique was also neatly constructed and there... More

My friend and I took the little "train" up to the notre dam for about €8 each if I remember correctly from the vieux port. The views were beautiful and there were lots of good photo spots. We didn't pay to go inside the museum. Try to go in the morning because since we took the last train, we had... More

A special place whatever your faith is. The architecture with byzantine style mosaics. Take time to climb down to the crypt and have a look to all the ex voto covering the walls. every time I receive friends for their first time in marseille I bring them there and they leave stunned. Once, I've even seen a senior lady climbing... More

You have to go there and stay for a mass. The interior is charm, quiet, sacred, inspires reflection. It is like an isle of peace and faith in your travel. A gem

We didn't bother taking the tourist train from Port Vieux here. Instead we walked to the top of the hill through some very windy and small back-streets and just followed Google Maps. I had a but of a sweat going, but it is worth while when you get to the top. It is an interesting place to hang out. Try... More

... is absolutely outstanding. A sunset here will make you feel better even after a few hours in transit through airports and planes. The climb is completely worth it.
