We were able to spend some time walking around this magnificent cathedral but being a Tuesday we were not able to do a tour inside this church,which was disappointing.It is really worth seeing especially if one choices the right day to visit
What a wonderful church to visit and you won’t miss being able to find it as it can be seen for miles. Admission is free but dress code is requested to be covered slightly. I had shorts and a t shirt on and that was...More
This cathedral had a very tangible feeling of peace and tranquility. The classical music that is played is unobtrusive but served to addd to the ambiance. Don't miss visiting this cathedral as there are numerous interesting features inside.
This cathedral is one of the most beautiful and has an amazing power on people as the moment you step in. Magnificent view when the sun goes throught the colourful rose-windows. This is the most fascinating building in Marseille. Next to the cathedral there is...More
As many reviwers have said this Cathedral is wonderfully situated and has notable architectural features both outside and in. However we found it our visit disappointing for several reasons one of which was that we could not find any information or literature available in English...More

See map Marseille. Go to the cruise ship port (not the old port) and look at street view. You can walk to Cathédrale La Major and Panier area. You can continue to walk to Fort St Jean and Église Saint-Laurent church (foot bridge across highway from Fort St. Jean). There you can take bus 60 to Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. Which I would do first because the view of the city is stunning and the church is beautiful inside. Bus 60 winds around the old port and up the hill to the church and stops at the church. Then you take bus 60 from the church back to Fort St. Jean. Sit on the right side going up and the left side going down. You can do it!
