  • This Palace is, as in the big hotels and restaurant, that smile that greets you and open the door. You don't walk in a palace hall, but in a setting. Left the Fort Saint Jean, reminiscent of the Knights and pilgrims who were leaving for "Earth". Right, the more old and beautiful in the remains of the city and opposite the Canebière, and all the works of Marcel Pagnol. When you leave the "old Port" you see more than the castle of If and the islands of Frioul. In the beyond the horizon and his dreams.

  • A place to visit with its garden convenient for children, the view of the beautiful old port certainly one of the most beautiful in marseille, useful benches for the scenery, I would stay.

  • A very nice building, a small friendly Park where you can relax quietly with a magnificent view of the old port. The possibility also of a picnic where to have lunch in one of the two restaurants nearby

  • Beautiful place to have picnic with friends and family.specially,in the summer time weather is good and sunny.
  • Came to see the building but loved the view of the harbour even more. The building is now used for conferences. The green lawn is full of children playing and people lying around enjoying the sun. There is a small park for young children.
  • Very beautiful building and the outside is even better with very nice views of the city and the sea.
  • We didn't manage to go inside however the grounds are very good and the views on offer are amazing, from the sea right along the coast and into Vieux Port.
  • Very calm park, not much to do, but the views are very good, it's one of the "don't miss" spots in Marseille.
