A lot of restaurants to choose from, although there isn't a very large variety of dishes. In the morning there is the fish market. It's the start point for the cruise to If castle and for the mini train to Notre Dame de la Garde.

Two sides of the port are flanked by many restaurants mostly with tables outside. Fabulous dining experiences are to be had here. Buses at the third take your to most parts of Marseille.

I was disappointed to find that there was very little, if any, seating at Marseilles' Vieux Port. Apparently visitors/tourists and locals are expected to perambulate repeatedly back and forth underneath the large architect-designed mirror-covered roof section. I walked the length of the port/harbour on both...More

The Old Port of Marseille is, in fact, the centre of its social life. Almost all people of Marseille go for a walk from one side of the port to the other in the evening. There are also plenty of musical events happening and people...More

A lovely location to watch, sit back and relax. Lots of places to eat and drink. Boat rides go out from this area and there is also a ferry boat to take you from one side of the port to the other side. Definitely worth...More

Still operating as port for leisure ships is a full life place. In the early morning there is the fish market of fishermen that fished overnight. Plenty of colour and local people that populate the concrete. All around there are resturants and coffee shop that...More

We drove around the entire port and walked the majority of it. If you go early you may be in time for the fish market. There are also shops that pop up with creative items too. There are so many places to take beautiful pictures...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... More
