  • Key point of the city. There is the lifeblood of the metropolis. Maybe a little too chaotic to be expected given the location.

  • This is the first time that I come to Marseille and frankly I find this beautiful city! We are directly on the old port, and there was a real visual treat! We had heard of the old port of our Lady of the guard of the prior/Prior... visually, we know all the "must-sees" and to see them in "real", it was a delight! We came by car with the little apprehension of the conduct of Marseille, in the end, even if some one an a little sporty, it is overall driving "benevolent" (little honking! And we have the right to be wrong without that one rattle you on...) brief better than Paris and its region! Back to the port, the place is pleasant, filled with boats, marinas and boats for the visits (the calanques are to do!) but there is also a small electric barge to cross the port for € 0.50. Ago enormous restaurants, bars... you will surely find your happiness! For the more adventurous there is a Ferris wheel!

  • We spent a night in the old port. Beautiful ride with views of the magnificent ships. We can eat according to the tastes and the terraces are not lacking

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.
