Easily accessible by car, bus or petit train, this is a must-do in Marseille as it gives you the full overview. There are all needed amenities like toilets and restaurant and shop. There is a walway all around the basilika which allows you to see...More

We visited the basilique notre dame de la garde on a quiet Monday afternoon. It is absolutely breathtaking to see. I recommend a walk through la vieille charité (paniers) before for a nice walk.

Our small tour included this spot. We were glad that we had been driven up to it as walking would have included an incredibly steep and winding trek. If you walk to the top most tier to take in the view of the area, you...More

Across from the Panier, on top a hill stands Notre Dame de la Garde, Protector of Marseille and its sailors. There are ship ex votos hanging from the vaults and paintings displayed on the walls. It is a long climb from the harbour but well...More

Well worth seeing but it's situated high up on a hill overlooking the city and harbour. I would recommend taking bus 60 from the old port for 2 euros and walking down to enjoy the experience. The church is rather beautiful inside and you can...More

The view from this place is amazing! The basilica is nice as well, but it’s nothing compared to the 360 view you get from this place.

How on earth did people think on this scale hundreds of years ago? The site is on top of a hill and the scale of the structure is mind blowing. Not to be missed (a number 60 bus goes to the doorstep

The church is spectacular inside and out. The location offers the best panorama over Marseille. The walk up is quite steep. It is worth splurging for an Uber or taking the bus #60.

There is the Petit Train bus tour that takes you up from the old port to the Basilica but I am not aware of any tours of the church itself. You do not really need it.
