My friend and I went on this train because we were trying to get up the hill from the old port. It was only 8 euros, and gave a little audio tour all the way up. They dropped us off right at the top (note:...More

It is the precise way to know the narrow streets of Marseille, comfortable, with precise comments on the attractions of the city. Reasonable price. Both routes, 1 or 2 have the same value, I decided for the second one, which shows the old city.

We caught this from the old port. It's like something from a kid's TV show. There are a couple of different trips, we did the one to the basilique - Notre Dame De La Garde. It takes about 20 minutes and takes you through streets...More

The train drives you besides beautiful touristic sides of Marseille. During the tour to Notre dame de la Garde you will cross the city and see beautifull views of the sea and the small islands in front of the coast. Chateau d'If, Plage Catalan and...More

Thanks for the tourist trip on the petit train a few days ago. It was good, apart from one thing - this was the stop at Notre-Dame De La Garde - this spoilt the tour for me. Up until then the trip had been in...More

This little toad train took us on a very interesting trip, we went on circuit 1 which took us to Notre Dame de la guarde. It was spoken in several languages so was easily understood

Regarding parking near the train I would not know. Marseille in fact has a bad reputation, just like all the port cities. Regarding traffic, I do not think you'll be stuck.

Circuit 1 of the Petit Train is the circuit that goes to Notre Dame de la Garde. You can hop off and hop on at Notre Dame only. There are no other stops on Circuit 1. The fare last month was 8 Euros per person.
