The walk up to the top takes you to the unniversity but the views are lovely behind the main building
A short walk from the old port and we had excellent views on a Sunday morning of 100s of yachts and other boats large and small leaving the harbour and sailing into the Med. On a sunny day its a great place just to sit and watch.

Go there by the end of the day when the sun starts to go down and you'll have wonderful pictures of the old port. The Pharo itself is also a lovely building that you can't visit but it has wonderful grounds where you can picnic if you wish.

Lovely open space with huge Les arcs sculpture on lawn, fantastic views across the Vieux Port and waterfront area with new Mucem gallery. Nice play are for children - it was Wednesday, so lots of families about. Palais not open to visitors.
Great place for a picnic! Stop at the local boulangerie or deli, and head to this park that overlooks the Med!. Watch sailboats and motorboats enter and exit the Vieux Port. The park has both shady and sunny benches as well as child toys for the kids to play on. Very relaxing in the afternoon!
big park and lots of people just hanging around enjoying the weather and the magnificent views of the port. there was a huge sculpture exhibit while we were there and fun to see the local kids kicking soccer balls around..
take some food and blanket with you, and seat down on the grass next to the palace, very nice vsea view.
A very nice view to Le Vieux Port and city downtown and also to the Mediterranean. All surroundings are well treated.
