“nice church, worth the climb”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

it's a bit of an uphill slog to say the least, but it's well worth it. Look out for the ships dangling from the ceiling and the memorial tank from the Second World War just outside. Service-goers may be asked to read a lesson - the unsuspecting lady in front of me was.

This is quite a historical site and the Basilique is just beautiful. If in Marseille, be sure to visit.

“Incredible panorama”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The Basilique de Notre Dame de la Garde is worth to go not only because of the beautiful building, but mailnly because of the amazing view of Marseille's panorama. The basilique is placed on the hill so that you are able to see the whole city. You can walk there by foot or you can get there by the tour bus from the Old Port for 7 euros.

“Magnificent Views”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The views of the port of Marseille and offshore islands were magnificent. We took a taxi up to the basilica and later walked back down to the Vieux Port. It was an easy walk.

“Splendid views”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Overlooking the greater Marseille with a 360 degree perspective this is not to be missed. The walk up the hill was a steep one covering 154 metres upwards. Nothing for high heels.
