Superbly renovated with great style and design. Beautiful place to wander around. Every view is great! The cafe is really good as well. Came back three times over the weekend it is that good.

Fort St Jean is a bit of a city oasis - within the walls the buzy Marseille outside disappears. It's connected to the MUCEM with a cool bridge. The Tour du Roi Rene provides a superb view over the old harbour and Notre Dame de...More
