Attraction details
Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

The beautiful location on top of a small hill makes this whole visit even more enjoyable. View of the city, Mucem and sea. Big cathedral with moorish influences on the outside is impressive. Inside is also nice, but relatively simple for a church of this size and importance.

My husband and I took a taxi from Vieux Port (the old port) up to the church (less than 10 euros), which meant we didn't have to walk all the way to the tourism office (which is out of the way) to catch the touristic train, which would have cost us 8 euros anyway. You can walk but it would take you hours and the incline is immense. The touristic train departs from the basilica to take passengers back to the old port also.

The church itself is beautiful and the view from the top overlooks the city of Marseille. It is well worth the visit.

Must see place if you ever visit Marseille. I also recommend going there on foot, to get the well deserved overview of the city.

We took the tram to the Basilique. It is the best way to go as it is a 15 minute ride and you get a great view of the beaches and the beautiful homes on the hill. If you are walking this is a great hike and it is about 4 miles from the port. Casual attire comfortable shoes and water a must. They don't charge anything to see the place and there and it takes about an hour to see everything. The stairs to the top are not for the faint of heart it is about 20 floors up. If you are not up to a lot of climbing there is an elevator to get you there.
