Palais Longchamp, Marseille

(4.1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Magnificent Palace both architecturally and in the quality of the works presented. The visit ends with the tour of the zoo with small and large animals dummy.

  • It was a bad experience in the sunday morning. - Very bad servcie. The waitor is not smart at all. We were the first on the waiting list and they made us waited like 45 mns. Worse, that 's not due to the restaurant was full it was because he acted so slow to clean the table that we were waiting for a empty table for 20mns.... - For a 16euro formula, I expected much better than that. A brunch but no eggs no bacons no sausage??? Excuse me?? Only cold dishes. - Food not frensh. So I dont even understand why Little Marseille recommand this place. Should be a money game.. what a shame!
