Took the little tourist train from the Vieux Port area. The tour went around some the tourist sites and up to the Basilique. There are great views of Marseille and the area. Well worth visiting.

we went there by the little train that started at the old harbour - normally I would not get on such a touristic vehicle, but we had no other choice. The tour this train took is very scenic and you habe a 25-minutes stop at the church. The view from there overlooking Marseille is great. The church is worth visiting it.

Marseille France is hilly as it is right on the French Riveira so once in Marseille if you look around you will see this Basilique/Church high up in the hills from everywhere and it's stunning. You wind up the hills to get there and once parked you will walk many steps to various observation points which stunningly look out to the Med. Sea. The Church itself is very beautiful and peaceful. I highly advise a visit if you are in Marseille, France.

We walked up to this church from the harbor, a long uphill hike, but the church's ornateness inside is worth the trip. (There are busses to go up, too). Free, clean public toilets, too.
