Wow! what a piece of art. Approach thru small lanes. But do go. Just from the gate /entrance it worth viewing. Photos know tell the whole story. One of the best sights in France.

This is such an impressive building built in 1869 to celebrate the city's new aqueduct; it has a spectacular water feature which you can wander all around. The grounds at the back are lovely too where you can sit and admire the view with an ice-cream and a drink!

A historical masterpiece with a beautiful Marseille view. Has a beautiful garden above. Close to metro station. If you arrive with metro, it is nice spot to start city tour since you walk downward all the way.

this is the place for peace and quite if the city gets to hectic. A very nice park with a outstanding palais. We had a wonderful stroll through the park and enjoyed a tranquil Sunday afternoon there. Coming from a more wet climate there could have been more grass..

This was our first stop in Marseilles off the cruise ship. The weather was perfect and it was a great place to take some nice pictures. Worth stopping by if you are in the area and not heavily populated by tourists.

Beautiful hidden gem in Marseille, you simply must walk up and see this to believe it. We hired bikes and rode up, and spent a good hour looking over this wonderful building which is a monument to water. Absolutely stunning!

The last time my wife and I visited friends in Marseille it was 2009. This was one of my favorite spots for snapping a few really good pictures. The deep blue (cloudless that day) Provence sky and the rainbow the sun made at the fountain really made some superb pictures.

The building front is spectacular, huge waterfall and ornate stonework. We ascended the steps walked over to the gardens and found a bench in the shade to eat our picnic lunch. We walked round the so called 'funny' zoo. Filled with plastic animals, very odd. But even odder were the toilets, luckily I found a disabled toilet that I could... More

We visited with 2 other couples... Enjoyed the architecture outdoors and the quick stroll through the Funny Zoo in the back. You can access the Palais from the outside for no fee. If you are interested in the art, you can buy tickets to enter the 2 museums. Both are rather small... Perfect if you want to enjoy the art... More
