Worth visiting monument/palace in the city. Huge structure with beautiful sculptures, water fountains and a park behind the main structure. This is a water tower that was constructed in the 1800s to provide clean water to the city. It now houses two museums-the fine arts...More

The monument/fountain was more beautiful than expected. A wedding party even stopped by while we were there... It was less than 30min walk from Vieux port to get there, we walked along the tram tracks so you should be able to take the tram if...More

First impression was like i was in a fairytale, outstanding building with fountain and all in greens. That's all to see, but then my friends and I found a museum of animals in the bulding which was interesting to visit as well.

This building was even more stupendous then it looks in the pictures. It was built to celebrate the water that was brought to Marseille via the canals. The fountain is glorious.

Formerly Napoleon's haunt, this is now a park with a great water feature. We stopped by here and wandered the grounds and enjoyed the sights.

We walked out here from the Old Port - it took us about half an hour, but you could get a tram. Palais Longchamp is an impressive monument to water, dating from the 1860s, at a time of the construction of canals and aqueducts. Part...More

I was mesmerized at this beautiful palace! It was like visiting a fantasy place. The structure , the facade and the landscape was marvelous! Even though, the fountain was not functioning, it's a must- see masterpiece!

Thank you, Jas, for your response. We will take tram to go to Notre Dam Cathedral, and then back to old town. Probably will be able to find another tram or metro to go to Palais Longchamp at Vieux Port. Thanks again.

I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to this question, because, we were brought there by a tour bus, pre-arranged before the cruise.
