  • Go to this place for great views of the Vieux-Port. Same can be said about the sight of the all Marseille bay. On a clear day can see railway bridges on the North-West side.
  • What a beautiful surprise that we randomly happened upon. The lights were an added bonus. They turned on right as we were walking up the hill. Beautiful views of the city lights at sunset.
