  • A beautiful park, a superb building and above all a wonderful view on the entrance of the old port. ...

  • Still a staple of Marseille, to make some pictures with your family or just walk around, do a little tour in the Park enjoy a unique point of view of the port and the sea.

  • Plunge into the heart of the second Empire. Eugenie who commanded this Palace offers us today a gorgeous Park and another point of view on the old port.

  • Je n'ai visité que le parc autour du palais du Pharo. Il est assez complet, il y a même des jeux d 'enfants, toilettes publics, fontaine d 'eau. L'accès au bord de l'eau est possible du côté Sud, avec vue sur le port de Marseille et la cathédrale major. Il y a une petite promenade à faire sur un chemin escarpé côté Sud. Quelques bancs vous permettront de flâner un peu au soleil.
  • Nice place for a function. View of the port is somewhat blocked but an overall nice location.
  • Magnificent palace built by Napoleon III for Eugénie, overlooking the sea and the old port of Marseille. Used for events and conferences.
  • 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.
  • Amazing views of the city. Great park.
