How to visit the prison cell of The Count of Monte Cristo in Marseille
Despite the fact that the famous prisoner of Duma was just his fiction, the camera of the Count of Monte Cristo is considered to be a visiting card of Marcel. It is located on the first floor, practically in a basement without windows with a huge door with a small window with a lattice on it.

How to do?

1. Go to the Château d'If on the If island.
2. The camera is on the first floor of the building.
3. There is a small TV set where you can see the scene of the meeting between Dantes and Faria cut out from the movies of different years.
4.Buy a souvenir in a local store or sit in a cafe overlooking Marseille.
