Thoroughly enjoyed our day In Marseille. A lovely port area to walk around. Lovely restaurants and coffee stops. Such a lot to see around the new part as well. Hadn't expected to enjoy as much as we did. Well worth a visit from a cruise stop.

It was a very pleasant surprise to arrive to the city and see this port full of life and sun. I didn't expect it to be so nice. The nightlife is really good, with lots of people sitting outside drinking and talking. We felt really safe and relaxed walking around the port.

The boats in the harbor are new, but this is where the Greeks landed and everyone else for 2,000 years. It is safe and walkable. There is a small train that will take you around the harbor.

So much to do. Boat rides to the islands. Ferry rides across the port. Then there is Fort St. Jean and it is beautiful and Hugh. Walking the walls give incredible photos and views of the blue Green Bay. Lots of restaurants to chose from. We took the little train tour, it was nice but the descriptions were meager. It... More

The Vieux Port area of Marseille is a place to hang out, eat, look at the boats and have a good time! Nothing adventurous here. Good place to watch life go by in Marseille.
