Palais Longchamp, Marseille

4.1
#5 of 14 in Historic Sites in Marseille
Palais Longchamp is famous for its intricately designed architecture, accented by the garden it faces. The palace was created to celebrate the construction of the Canal de Marseille, which brought water from the Durance River to Marseille. Although the foundation stone was laid by the Duke of Orleans in 1839, the building took 30 years to complete, partly because of the enormous expense and partly because of difficulties with local regulations.

    Sincerely to do because it's a great Park. A magical view. A pleasant out all days of the week.

    Interesting architecture, impressive statues, but it is very dirty, there is waste everywhere, even behind the statues located in height, a lack of maintenance frankly very rude... There's museums nearby, otherwise, the Park not worth it at all.

    In the heart of 19th district, the Longchamp Palace and garden are real pearls! Don't miss the Museum of Fine Arts.

    Best buffet in town? Where was it? They served us a couple of eggs and a sausage. Nice food but scarce. And the service was kind of poor. Maybe it was too early for them?

    Bouncer denied access on a Thursday morning when we just wanted to have breakfast.

    Super place for dinner and / or some beer before strolling into the night. Trendy crowd, friendly staff, beer starts with 5€ for a 0.5 glass.

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.
