  • Nice and well cared for garden, elegant Napoleonic Palace surrounding, stunning contrast between the Palace and the modern opera 84 Arcs/Désordre 2013 that the fronts. Ideal place for a relaxing break on the benches of the Park, where you can enjoy an incomparable view of the Vieux port and the complex of the Cathedral and Mucem, Fort Saint Jean. From here you can take beautiful photographs.

  • Perhaps influenced by Valentine's day on the perception of this place, and possibly quite stressful day in terms of exploring the city, but when I got here at sunset, then turned as if in some OASIS. People a little, children rode the carousel, adult razminali your body before jogging, dogs were jumping for the ball. City noise is not heard, the sea quite close and the types of course simply potrjasnye. Here you can boldly picnickers and Le romantic. Locally uniquely has to love and harmony.

  • This place is legendary for the Marseillaise, it's the view on the old port in good weather you can enjoy the brushes of the boats entering and leaving port Attention by high wind is not great! The wide at sea the pharo and the entrance to the port are also remarkable...

  • 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.
