The Cathedral is located at the top of a hill and offers an almost 360 view of the city. Internal decoration is rich of details.

Beautiful church on top of a hill overlooking the city. Don’t try and walk, just get the Dotto train from the Vieux Port for €8.30, and sit back and relax. The train takes you along the corniche on the way up, so a little bit...More

A strenuous walk but worth it. A lovely church that gives a great view over the city. Only church I have found that has a drawbridge.

This is a must do when in Marseille. A 360 degree platform around the Basilique provides amazing view of the entire city of Marseille as well as the Islands and Sea immediately surrounding. Once inside, the amount of detail on the Catheral is inspiring. There...More

Had read reviews before visiting and knew we could take the bus to the top, but actually the walk up is lovely, lots of narrow streets, steep but very pretty! The views at the top are breathtaking, 360 views of Marseille, definitely not to be...More

We went to the cathedral at sunset. That alone was beautiful. A wonderful view of the city. I was particularly interested in this cathedral because it is linked with ships and I worked on cruise ships. It has displays of anchors, other ship-related items.

The statue of Our Lady (Notre Dame, known affectionately as the Good Mother) which overlooks the harbour is a key image of Marseille in France. I wasn’t aware of it before I visited but I now see why the towering figure and beautiful church is...More

Yes, you can drive the car all the way up to the basilica. In addition to a relatively small common parking, there is one even smaller parking for disabled persons. The later one gives easier access.
