The Vallon is a small port that can be reached freon the Kennedy Corniche. Small, colorful houses, many boats. But when you look toward the sea, a huge bridge partially blocks the view. Nice place to visit anyway.

Small fishing dock with a picturesque scenery. Eat some nice fresh seafood or just walk around. Love comes easier in a place like this.

Nice to visit, but avoid having lunch or diner there. Until a recent past, it was possible to visit this charming place and eat a nice seafood pizza. However, with the recent influx of tourists in Marseille this old fashion atmosphere is gone and the...More

It is nice to see but don't expect something big. It's nice to see though. You will not need more than 30 minutes to walk around.
