We often talk about sunsets but what about sunrises and their beautiful pinkish colour? Sure you have to get out of bed a bit earlier to admire the show, but it is worth it! Whether you are in the middle of nature or in the heart of the city, Marseille is full of good addresses to photograph the first lights of the day.
‘Palais du Pharo’
Overlooking the mythical ‘Vieux-port’ (old port), the ‘Palais du Pharo’ – located in a green park (the Emile Duclaux park)- enjoys a superb light on the boats of the ‘Vieux-Port’ in the early morning. You will be able to stroll quietly in the flower alleys, and enjoy a magnificent view of the city centre waking up.
The “Bonne Mère” (the Good Mother)
Located on the top of the hill of ‘La Garde’and culminating 148m of height, the ‘Notre-Dame de la Garde’ basilica is a must-see spot for a 360° panorama of Marseille. From morning to evening the sun shines theret and creates beautiful colours on the emblematic city.
