While visiting marseille there are many small places like le vallon that you can visit if you have plenty of time but not in short trips. It is old vintage but you wont be missing a lot if you skip it.

This old fishing village is beautifully located below the main corniche road with restaurants as well as old houses.

Quite frankly, there is nothing to it. It is only worth taking a look at it if you see the Monument aux morts de l'Armée d'Orient, which is almost on top of the Vallon des Auffes. It only makes sense in conjunction with the President Kennedy Corniche, plus the Monument aux morts. Otherwise, forget it.

The Vallon des Auffes is a very nice little place with a small harbor, a sea water natural swimming pool, some really nice restaurants. You can walk there from the Pharo gardens or Saint Voctor church. Very good place to finish the day.

A fantastic quartier of Marseille to visit. Plenty of restaurants and bars and nice to get away from the main busier areas such as Vieux Port.
