Palais Du Pharo - Review
When Prince-President Louis-Napoleon visited Marseille in 1852, he said liked the city a lot and wouldn’t mind staying. Eager to please its illustrious guest, the city gave the prince the Pharo headland where he went ahead and built this beautiful palace. And that was that, because he never even stayed there. The Empress later gave the place back to the city. Today it’s used as a conference centre. Visit for the tremendous views of the Old Port and the Chateau d’If. You can’t actually visit the building, but the grounds outside make for a nice stroll. The place is especially beautiful during the sunset – an absolutely magical picture.

Palais Du Pharo, Marseille Reviews
Great place to go and chill. Nice views
It was closed when we arrived to visit inside. Apart from that: great views! Truly recommend.
The walk up to the park, starting at the Old Port, is pleasant enough. The park surrounding the Palais is large and offers lots of vantage points to take in your surroundings. The one thing that was a bit disappointing was the fact that a number of places we wanted to have a drink weren't open yet at 11:30 am. In the corner of the park, close to the exit we found a small coffee stand.
Beautiful place, great view of the city and port... You can relax in the park & good for kids to play...
A nice view of the old port.A place to take good pictures. The park is a great place to relax with a lot of benches and a playground.
