    Great fountains and water feature
    Palais Longchamp, a great place to visit and watch the fountains. We took the metro from the port to the nearby station, ideal to know if on a cruise. And it took about 5-10 minutes to walk, first impressions was a massive wow!!! Great to watch the water flowing and fountains gushing and the architecture was stunning.

    Beautiful sculptures and water features
    This is such a pretty place leading onto a lovely park/garden area. The guide said it was a 'thank you gift'! I'd guess we'd all like this kind of thank you! The sculptures and water features look amazing from down below looking up, from the side as you walk up and from the top looking down. It is spectacular. Even better there is no admission charge.

    Marvelous fountain!
    The fountain is a Baroque masterpiece with many layers and characters. On a sunny day you can sit on a bench and enjoy the play of water and light. Groups of children visit the nearby museums and garden.

This monument is a work of incredible detail and art. View it from afar and then slowly walk closer, stopping to take in the new detail that comes into view. Don't forget to walk from one side to the other for more awesomeness.

Fabulous stop to see if you are in Marseille. We were here on a stop on our cruise in early May. We took a taxi from the harbour area and walked back which is going downhill, worked out really well. This place is amazing, beautiful details everywhere. There are two museums on site the one on the right is the Natural Museum, we did not spend much time here. Both of the museums are free. We really like the museum on the left side and spent quite a bit of time there. If you walk through to the back of the palace there are grounds you can walk through. There is also a zoo that you can walk down to, we had a time crunch so we skipped the zoo. We walked back down the main street across from the palace and stopped at L'Oli Be for lunch, hadn't planned on it but there were lots of people eating on the patio and the food looked delicious. The food was amazing so glad we stopped.

The Palais Longchamp is a truly awesome sight and upon approach your first thought is WOW! It's a little bit of a journey outside the city centre - 10 minutes and 4 stops on the metro from the harbour. It's massive structure, elegant statues and figurines and mesmerising waterfall and fountain means it's a sight not to be missed! It has stairwells to each side allowing you to climb up and get wonderful views of the pond below and also get great photos of the city too. It is very similar to the one found in the main park of Madrid.

A short metro journey and short walk from the centre brings you to this stunning palace. Fantastic stonework, fountains and waterfalls. Great for photos and sitting on the grass taking it all in. You must visit!

This was a lovely part of our walk around town. You really can't miss it as you head up the hill from the port and walk along the parks. This is a true monument and sort of takes your breath away. Very 19th Century.

The palace itself is quite nice, even a bit impressive. Especially given that it was built just because the aqueduct arrived in Marseille.

The park was rather disappointing though. Especially the part with the "Funny Zoo" which was absolutely ridiculous. What a joke. Poorly maintained as well.

Nice park and amazing monument. A bit difficult to access the actual park with a stroller. Nice kids’ playground but no cafes or water sellers so a bit awful climb without water during a heatwave.
