Enjoyed Old Port, but it is rough getting there. Neighborhoods are a little scary and I wouldn't go through some of them alone at night. Port itself has nice restaurants and cafes and a cool ferris wheel. An enjoyable day...

Pretty Port. Restaurants are average and not cheap. Took the boat trip €29, 3hrs. It was a poor. If I were you I wouldn't bother with more than one day in Marseille.

Really in the heart of the city, close to all the other major attractions, and also departure for other (islands), the new layout allows to see all three sides, preferably on foot and at its own pace.
