Best views from the city. Quite touristic but the area is large. The interior of the basilique is nothing impressive, as the other areas inside the building, still, worth to visit.

This is a, must do whilst in Marseilles. Take the local bus up there as it is up hill all the way. The views of the Port are spectacular. Amazing photos.

We took the last scheduled city bus up from the old port around 7pm, less than 2 € per person. Beautiful views in the early evening as the sun moved toward setting. We walked back down in the twilight hour. Highly recommended.

So worth the incredible hike to the top of this attraction. If you are not capable of the walk and stairs there is a bus and train-like thing that do get you much closer (but there are still stairs/hill once you are dropped off). The...More

Truly lovely and rich in history. We visited this during a cruise stop in Marseille. The views from Notre Dame were amazing and the beauty of the basilica was breathtaking. Loved learning of the history from our guide.

The drive up was slow, but there was adequate parking. It took much less time than the tram. The church is small and crowded, but the view makes it all worth while!
