#1 of 125 Sights & Landmarks in Marseille
The basilica itself is beautifully decorated with mosaics and full of a variety of thankful donations, including ship and plane models hanging from the ceiling, medals, paintings and many many marble plaques.
It offers the great combination of beautiful architecture, the best viewpoint in the city, being a well known landmark and being an enjoyable climb if you like an energetic urban hike.

Rocky limestone mountains and cliffs which together the fjord like geography set against the azure blue colour of the Mediterranean Sea make for stunning beauty, adventure, recreation, touring and photography.
East of Marseille, near the village of Cassis, is a gorgeous national park. Park National des Calanques has beautiful cliffs and inlets and can be seen by boat, on foot, or bike.

After a lovely lunch at Nautic Bar, with a charming view overlooking the harbor, we were able to hike the short path to the first Calanque beach which was small but beautiful.
If you have the agility to climb down to the beaches below the cliffs, then make sure to take your costumes and camera as this place is beautiful.

Such a great way to spend a couple of hours away from the busy city centre!!! Boat trip costs as little as € 10 euros per person!!! Going for a walk in the islet is a must!!! Highly recommended!!!
Lots of ruins to explore, a range of places to eat (mostly closed in winter but some still operating) and some really fabulous walks to get to fantastic vantage points with spectacular views.

Another important religious structure in Marseille is the monastery of St. Victor, an 11th-century building, named after Saint Victor, a Roman soldier who became a Christian martyr.
Despite the ravages and indignities it has suffered over the centuries, it remains well worth a visit, which could be easily combined with a trip to Notre Dame de la Garde further up the hill.

The architect, Jacques Henri Espérandieu, who created Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica, was chosen to create a monument commemorating the amazing accomplishment of the Marseille Canal.
It was fascinating to learn about the natural history and to see the many artifacts in the collection - be it man made or fossils or specimens of flora and fauna.

Cite Radieuse Le Corbusier is part of everyday existence but architecture lovers celebrate it as a piece of art of a building designed by architect Le Corbusier.
10 euros for a guided tour by a very knowledgeable guide was great value for money.

You can walk around the outside and can get great views of the port and sea, and if you go inside you will see the lovely architecture of the fort and amazing views!
Some of the best views of the town and port and the hills in Marseille and beyond are to be had from the high vantage points of these beautifully preserved fortress walls and towers.

Of course it seems and probably is dodgy to some people but the area is unique, a melting pot of people and nationalities and a real gem for street art hunters.
Le Cours Julien is a nice area to wander around and have a look at the amazing wallpaintings and graffiti all over the place.

The first connecting point in Marseille, between the metro and city buses, and the railway to all major cities in France and Europe, by regional bus, by train and by bus to the airport.
Modernisation has made this a great station with helpful and friendly staff, good to spend time people watching as you wait for your train

The best way to enjoy the 360 degree view of the city, is to experience the big wheel ride.
