  • We see him from the old Port! He looks proudly at the Mediterranean with all its history. A very beautiful monument or Napoleonic history may thank him

  • Perfect grounds, great view of the ocean & Vieux Port. Defintely worth a stroll & casual meander. Would recommend.  more »

  • Peaceful and beautiful setting with lovely views of the entire area. Wouldn't mind having a conference here at all. The park on the grounds has an art sculpture and built-in seating. Great place for a picnic. There's also a small carousel and cafe on one side. No dogs allowed.
  • It offers a beautiful scenic view of the port in Marseille. Bring a book or a drink and absorb the stunning scenery. There's also a large green field to lie down, play soccer or just watch people go by.
  • Quiet place, great view to the port of marseille and the sea, open free till 21h Sumner time
  • Beautiful view towards the old port of Marseille, the mucem and the cathedrals!
  • Cool from the outside. Great view over the ocean.

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.
