We caught this from the old port. It's like something from a kid's TV show. There are a couple of different trips, we did the one to the basilique - Notre Dame De La Garde. It takes about 20 minutes and takes you through streets...More

This little toad train took us on a very interesting trip, we went on circuit 1 which took us to Notre Dame de la guarde. It was spoken in several languages so was easily understood

The train (which is really a small truck pulling open air carriages) leaves from the harbour and drives around the seafront and up to the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. It is a great drive up the very windy and extremely steep streets and provides...More

We were on a cruise and had little time. The train gaves a city tour on the way to Notre Dame and it's wonderful views. Great value.

A good way to get oriented and to see the most interesting parts of Marseilles. One sevice goes to the Panier and the other along the Calanquesto Notre Dame de la Garde. Each is worth the trip.

Normally, my husband and I are slightly bemused by adults who use these forms of transportation but on this occasion we felt it was the best option. 8€ each for a return to Notre Dame - don't try and walk there! - the train takes...More

Regarding parking near the train I would not know. Marseille in fact has a bad reputation, just like all the port cities. Regarding traffic, I do not think you'll be stuck.

Sorry- unable to give you times but our ship docked early and passengers began disembarking by 8am. It took a little while on the shuttle coach to get down to the port...If the train hadn't been running by 9.00am they would... More

Circuit 1 of the Petit Train is the circuit that goes to Notre Dame de la Garde. You can hop off and hop on at Notre Dame only. There are no other stops on Circuit 1. The fare last month was 8 Euros per person.
