The must-see Notre-Dame de la Garde
If there is one thing to see in Marseille, it is our famous Good Mother, Notre-Dame de la Garde, which culminates on the top of its hill! All means are good to go up there, on foot (count 20 minutes from the Old Port), by bike or by bus (N°60), but the ideal with children is with the little tourist train, this one is taken on the Old Port and leads you directly to the feet of the Basilica!
