We have stopped here a couple of times for the view, and the fabulous statue and monument. Take time to read the history as well.

The food is amazing but the view is the real winner. Very romantic. Try to sit by the pool to get a full ocean view. Definitely a favorite in the south of France!

This has been renamed in the 60's to honor President Kennedy. The views of the Frioul Islands makes this part of the cliff road network stand out. This was a "make work" project began in the 1840's which took 15 years to complete. It gave work to about 8,000 unemployed laborers, sort of like our WPA in America.

Young brides find the arch a particularly attractive spot for wedding photographs and the residents enjoy walking along the cliff road.

It's a 30 minutes walk from the old port, but the street is currently under construction and it's not a very relaxing walk. The view along the way is beautiful. It's something to do if you want a closer look of the If castle and the nearby islands.

We took bus #83 from the Vieux Port stop, which is on Quai des Belges. The trip takes around 30 minutes if going all the way to Rond Point du Prado, which includes 4 kilometres of magnificent coastline on the Corniche du President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, nothing but the beautiful blue of the Mediterranean. Make sure you sit on the right hand side of the bus for the views of the coast line, these buses can be very busy.

We went all the way through to Rond Point du Prado, however, we decided to take the bus back and alight on the corniche at stop Vallon des Auffes. This is the stop to see the beautiful 1927 Monument Aux Morts Des Orients, which commemorates those who died for France overseas. This is also the stop for Vallon des Auffes, a fishing village which was settled by Italians in the 18th century. The name comes for the type of grass used for making ropes and fishing nets. The bus stop overlooks the tiny bay of the village below, with the steps close by to walk down into the village.

We then decided to take the bus the rest of the way back to Marseille, which was a bad mistake. The stop of Vallon des Auffes, is also the stop for those who go swimming and the bus was already packed when it arrived, it got very competitive and we watched in horror, as people were still trying to get on wedging themselves in the door, so it wouldn’t close. Buses were supposed to run every 15 minutes, (they didn’t) and we missed two buses because they were so full, we ended up waiting an hour. Would suggest alighting at Vallon des Auffes, then taking the bus onto Rond Point du Prado, then taking the metro back to Marseille, which was our original plan, until we changed our minds, it would have saved a lot of time.

If you're visiting Marseille, this is a great stop for some lovely photos. The views are amazing and the monument overlooking the sea makes for a great photo! We stopped here on a tour during a cruise stop and were so glad we did.

This beautiful monument is stunning in its simplicity. It overlooks the most beautiful part of the Marseilles city and out into the water. It was a great site to see!

Our tour route included a drive along this coastal road, a section of which is named in honour of President J.F.Kennedy. Busy road with very slow moving traffic at times. Great views over the Mediterranean and some nice beach areas, the offshore islands with the lighthouse and old fort, some attractive houses and monuments. We turned onto Avenue du Prado at the roundabout on Prom. Georges Pompidou. Enjoyable drive.
