  • Recommended for watching the sunset. Take a bus to the train stop "Pharo" and walk up the park until you see the palace. You will find a bench where you can enjoy the best sunset in Marseille.
  • Beautiful building. Used for conferences etc. The security is sometimes a bit too strict. For instance, they would send me to another entrance, only for me to walk back to where I was, but then inside. They are also not too friendly (not all of them though).
