Le vieux port is the main place to visit in Marseille, lots of bars and restaurants, fishermen selling fresh fish, a nice market, its all a must see. Boat trips,HOHO or mini train, all make for a very busy but fun place to be.

Easily accessible by Metro Line 1 Vieux Port station. What you see is lot of yacht and restaurants along the Port. Good to stroll along and find a good restaurant for a meal.

Lacks the real charm of other similar "old ports" of France, lots of restaurants and shops but the surrounding area is rather dirty and messy. The market held here is nice though.

Yes definitely! I agree with previous answer that you should take a taxi TO the area but once you are there 2-3 hrs is fine. Some shops but mostly restaurants and boats...lots of boats!
