This place appears out of nowhere and is huge. Awesome structure with great water fountain sculptures. Pity about the graffiti that is around it. A must see.

Came here when on a tour with Royal Carribean. This place is absolutely stunning! A real must see when in Marseille. Came here with my baby and no issues with mobility.

We took the tram to get there and it truly has the WOW factor. It had a wonderfully calming atmosphere. The steps up to the top can be hard going, but once there the view is outstanding. Well worth a visit!

Having read mixed reviews, it was great to see the Palais Longchamp up close and personal. It exceeded expectations and provided a magnificent photo opportunity too. There was some graffiti but that did't really detract from the aesthetic experience. Wee got there easily and back...More

Massive flowing fountains and gleaming white sculpture set in a green lush lawn-like setting evoke Roman gods and mythology. This was a totally spectacular fountain complex. It was started in 1839 and finished 30 years later. There had been a zoo which closed in 1987....More

This is off the main tourist route, but well worth a visit. You can easily walk from the harbor and that, in itself, is interesting. This was built to celebrate the canal that brought water to Marseille and is over the top amazing. There is...More

To get here you must pass through some less savory areas of Marseille, but worth the cab ride for sure

Thank you, Jas, for your response. We will take tram to go to Notre Dam Cathedral, and then back to old town. Probably will be able to find another tram or metro to go to Palais Longchamp at Vieux Port. Thanks again.
