Vieux Port

It's Marseille's tourism star. Fishing boats and yachts pack this ancient port. The name means Old Port. Sorry to say, cruise ship docks are distant from Vieux Port - and roads along the way can be congested.

Notre Dame Basilica

This church sits high on a hill overlooking Marseille, creating a stunning sight. Interior is less captivating.
