All reviews impressive cathedral mosaic floors worth a visit old port white stone other attractions open to the public notre dame le panier great architecture de la port area cruise ship interior stripes domes altar
It is an impressive structure and is also surrounded by a large plaza area with great views across the city coastline. So worth a visit in that respect. However, if you are short on time and only have time for a couple of stops
After being dropped off by the harbour, we saw this large cathedral. We walked around clockwise looking for a gate opening. Not until about 3 o'clock do you see the closed for renovation signs. However, it was still worth the walk. The stonework was quite...More
An abundance of architectural references and poor taste. It’s a fun walk through, but nothing more. The tiny Medieval chapel next door is going through extensive renovation and will be a gem when reopened.
A massively building, beautifully built on the outside and even more stunning on the inside. Thought we wouldn’t be able to go inside as it is closed Tuesday’s, but went in the next day. Well worth seeing both this Cathedral and Notre Dame.
We often gawk at the enormous structures that these old churches represent. The engineering to build the gigantic inside spans when there were no mechanical aids whatsoever. This building is architecturally amazing on the outside and really quite stunning inside. A must
This Cathedral is worth a visit for both the black and white stone construction outside and the dual colored stone decoration inside. The high arches, multi domed main and side altars, and multiple flags add to the interest and color. Add to your visit a...More
A must see in Marseille - tips- you can get 75mins free parking at the carrefour 5 mins walk down the road as long as you buy something like a drink, or in my case, a croissant and a bottle of water for breakfast
I can not believe the massive size of this cathedral. Easy walk from where Royal Caribbean cruise ship buses drop you off on town. I would recommend double checking the times it is open. When we were there, they were closed but it was still...More

See map Marseille. Go to the cruise ship port (not the old port) and look at street view. You can walk to Cathédrale La Major and Panier area. You can continue to walk to Fort St Jean and Église Saint-Laurent church (foot bridge across highway from Fort St. Jean). There you can take bus 60 to Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. Which I would do first because the view of the city is stunning and the church is beautiful inside. Bus 60 winds around the old port and up the hill to the church and stops at the church. Then you take bus 60 from the church back to Fort St. Jean. Sit on the right side going up and the left side going down. You can do it!
