If you have time its worth going inside. You may need to take ticket to visit inside. Outside the fort you can get some good views.

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 joined to the MuCEM by a bridge and the Panier by another. There was an unusual exhibit tied with Voyages imaginaires : Picasso et les ballets russes, design of costumes and backdrops Picasso did for the Russian ballet. A recent film with excerpts from the ballets was shown as well.

On our one day in Marseille Abbaye Saint-Victor was closed so we headed to Fort Saint-Jean. The fort buildings are free but you need to pay to go into the museum.

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the water was absolutely sparkling. There were also spring flowers around the fort. It is a nice place to wander around in nice weather and it has awesome views.

The restaurant in the complex is very expensive, I suggest leaving and going elsewhere around the port area if you get hungry.

Great view from the Vieux Port, plenty of medieval architecture and interesting exhibition for a very affordable price
