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.

This is a really nice church with great views of the city from the area around the church. Both the inside and the outside of the church are worth viewing. There is a train that does a tour around the area that starts in the harbor area and takes you up and back for a reasonable fee. The train is Les Petits Trains de Marseille circuit number 1. You can take one train up to the church, spend however long you would like to in and around the church then take another train back down. Remember to hold onto you train ticket as you will need it to get back onto the train for the return trip. It would take a while to walk up the hill to the church and this train saves you the work.
