The fish market is a wow as is the market on the side of the large basilica. Costs nothing to look and why not stroll around the fort while you are at it. Take the ferry across the harbour for grand views and photo opportunities.

During our stay we spent quite a lot of time around Le Vieux Port, that included eating, drinking, walking, shopping and catching the bus. Great Place, great atmosphere! However be aware that pick pockets are rife around the area.

I've been here several times, both by car and ship. It's pretty gritty and industrial. I would recommend staying away if possible.

This is the bustling heart of the city, touristy with some good restaurants, some ripoff dives to be avoided. There are useful corner shops for water and wine.

This is the place to visit in Marseille when looking for somewhere to eat, or just sit outside a café and watch the world go by. Wonderful views from any angle.

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!
