The Old Port

#1 of 7 places to visit in Marseille
The Marseille life is concentrated in the Old Port (Vieux Port): the fishmen sail off early in the morning to arrive with the fish market opening; the yachts are calling at port all day long and the small bars and cafes open on the seafront at evenings.

The ferris wheel is located here on the seafront as well. From it's top you will see all beauty of the Marseille harbor.

Vieux-Port Hotel de Ville metro station is placed near the port.
