  • Facing to the Fort St. John who underwent a facelift in saw the opening of MuCEM, on the other side of the harbour of the old Port, Fort Saint-Nicolas should meet the same fate... but the work are slow in coming, as often on Marseille. Fortress, the place is already host to some events and hides a small vineyard... Overlooking the old Port and facing our Lady of the guard, the Fort, once upgraded, may well become an exceptional spot from Marseille... There are to finalize the work :(

  • This huge fort in two parts (upper and lower) dominates the Bay of Marseille, including by its octagonal shape unusual... Unfortunately, the building is currently under renovation, so no visitable...

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
