Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde reviews
This basilica sits atop a beautiful hill overlooking the entire city. The harbor views are the best! It is free to enter and well worth the trip to the top for a gorgeous view of Marseille. We... more »
A wonderful view point of the city of Marseille, very interesting Basilique showing a lot of boats. Take the free elevator once you get to the upper car park. more »
Definitely worth a nice walk up from the centre of town to the top of the hill - takes you through some good streets to look at. it is very impressive on the inside and some incredible views from the outside. I will warn you though it's very popular.
Beautiful sights of the city. Lovely building. We climbed the steps, there is also the option to park next to the church (top of the hill) or you can also take an elevator if you are not driving. We went in March and there was plenty parking space.
