Probably the first place tourists visit when they first arrive in Marseille. Besides its historical significance and the contributions the port made to the economic progress of Marseille, it is recommended that you take in both the daytime and nighttime views. They are significantly different...More
We spent 2 days in Marseille and they in a lot of ways were filled with this place.
Either it’s taking boats to islands, or eating out close to water, or visiting one of the forts, we were able to enjoy this magic place and...More
La Vieux Port exceeded our expectations. We did a cruise that ended in Marseille and booked a couple nights at an AirBnB before heading to Provence. We were a bit nervous as we had heard from several French people that they avoid Marseille. There is...More
The Old Port is an absolute must visit when in Marseille. It appears to have been recently developed with large, open plazas that have the odd street performers and, of course, gigantic Ferris wheel that can give you great views across the city. There are...More
Near the old port is a huge cathedral, but it was closed for total renovation. Then there is the old fort at the harbour mouth. The harbour is filled with pleasure boats with many restaurants along the harbour. at the city end, they were installing...More
We stayed at the Grand Hotel Beauvau on Vieux Port. Absolutely a great place to watch the people. The fisherman/women come in every morning 365 days a year since 1901 to sell their sea food. Just a beautiful port and I can see why artists...More

My wife and I cruised to Marseille cruise port in October 2017. We thought the cruise bus at Euro15 was a bit high and found a bus stop within 6~8mins walking distance. Just follow the colour line on the road and it would lead you to the bus stop. The bus fare is 3Euro each person and the destination at the city center where you can easily walk to the port in another 10 mins alongside a main road. We did the same bus back after a nice stroll around the port and had our lunch nearby.

Take the shuttle bus! The large port is not the same as the “old port/vieux port.” Though you may be able to save a few €uros, finding a cab/uber and getting to the city center/bourse or Vieux Port is not a simple task and... More
Take the shuttle bus! The large port is not the same as the “old port/vieux port.” Though you may be able to save a few €uros, finding a cab/uber and getting to the city center/bourse or Vieux Port is not a simple task and isn’t worth the stress of hiring a cab, giving directions (en francais), and timely finding your way about town...
