Visited in mid January, it was cold but glorious sunshine. There were fresh fish vendors by the port in the morning. There were plenty of restaurants and bars on both sides of the port, a lovely place to have a casual stroke. Or you can...More
This is my favourite place to stroll around, stopping for a coffee or lunch next to the town hall then crossing back by ferry. It was particularly nice this year with the foire aux santons and the marche de Noel as added points of interest...More
A wonderful place to take a stroll. The local fishing boats had their catches on display for buyers. It was a strange collection of oceanic fish and creatures. We also enjoyed a local craft fair and purchased handmade soap and lavender scents.
Just a classic!
Coming from northern England, it is simply magical to walk around a city where you have as much sun in November as a month of july in Newcastle.
I fell in love with this city!!!
From now on I am supporting Newcastle...More
This port area is full of upscale restaurants, shops and the marina is, no surprise, filled with very expensive boats and yachts. A nice area to walk around for a while but we didn't stay long enough to spend a lot of money here.
A huge natural port with a very narrow entrance - easy to defend
Now a massive marina of boats and yachts surrounded by bars, restaurants, hotels and everything touristy that Marseille has to offer
In reality this is the reason you come to Marseille and...More

It took us 20 minutes by car from the airport, this was not in rush hour so little traffic. You could easily go to the port and sit in one of the many cafes. It is very pretty there. A boat trip would take too long. Enjoy!

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...
