Just across from our hotel - the New Hotel of Marseille. The palace is just a backdrop to extraordinary views across the river to the new port area.

This is a nice place to go chill and take a few nice pics of Marseille and the Viex Port. There is a small garden where you can picnic.

The views from here are amazing, you get panoramic view of Marseille old and new port. It's a great place for kids to play and run around, perfect for picnics and it's definitely the best spot to watch sunset.

I walked to the Park and I spent about 1 hour enjoying the stunning views of Marseille Port, the Fort opposite, and the busy transit of all shapes sailing and motor boats. I didn't have time left to visit the actual palace...next time I will!
