“Breathtaking place to be”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

There is park leading to this majestic building where one can go for a stroll, or simply sit and relax. The place where the Palais is located overlooks the old harbour. It's breathtaking and romantic.

“Lovely building”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Great views from the grounds but a bit of a trek for the older and less able bodied people. Nothing spectacular but worth a visit though.

“A stroll with a view”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Located at the left hand side of the Old Port, this is a great place to go for a stroll. As it is on a hill, it offers two different views: one on the Vieux Port and the city of Marseilles, the other on the bay and the islands. It has been renovated lately. The palace that stands there gave the place its name. It takes about 20 minutes to walk there from the Old Port.
