  • Nothing for the incredible view of the old port, the fort St. John and Mucem, a detour to the top of the Park is necessary. However the Palace does not visit.

  • Is a very beautiful place, quiet, beautiful photos, and has a map with the monuments, so that we can see from this place, we have a beautiful view of the city and beautiful jandins.

  • From here, you have a unique view over the harbour of the Fort and Mucem. One of the few peaceful, relaxing places in Marseille

  • 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.
  • Nice park and nice view. Although wouldn't say it add much more to the view you get from Notre Dame. Doesn't matter if you don't go
  • Attended a conference at this beautiful place. The building is magnificent with lovely features. So pleased it was held here.
  • Great place for getting a great view over the bay while laying on the grass or sitting on a bench.

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.
