By all means try and go up via bus as the climb can be fairly exhausting especially for the less athletic The views are great from the location.

There are many ways to get to the top of the hill (bus, taxi), but walking is the most interesting. There are pathways and stairways that are well marked. You feel a great sense of accomplishment getting to the top. There is no fee to...More

Fantastic Basillica and view over the Marseille, the marina and Mediterranean Sea. Be prepared to climb over 50 steps to get up there, but we’ll worth the climb

We got here by the little touristique train, although there is always the option of bus 60 from vieux-port. It's a definite must when in Marseille. Both the view and the basilique are spectacular.

This is a stunning church building commanding fabulous views over Marseille. The interior is light and airy, with beautiful work and a great atmosphere. Well worth the climb up from the Vieux Port.

Take the novelty train trip from the port where you can hop on and off. Do not take the cattle colour bus

Great views and a lovely place to visit, not a good place for people who are not very mobile, loads of steps to encounter. The views are magnificent of the city and the gold leaf on the roof statue is amazing

Doesn’t matter if you visit it by night or during the day, the place is definitely worth climbing the stair or, for the less active ones, using the bus.
