Marseille - looking for info on parking, plages, pastis and petanque!

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

We are staying at a B&B outside of Marseille for 2 nights (south of the city in the hills). We have a rental car and plan to visit the city with our 2 children this July.

I have already reserved a Marseille Greeters walking tour. My husband is also intersted in seeing Fort St. Jean.

My question is where can we park? I think I had seen warnings about thefts and so a covered parking garage had been recommended (parking du Pharo?). It does seem to be a good 30 minute walk to the Vieux Port. Does anyone have suggestions for where to park to visit sites around the Port?

We learned to play petanque a few years ago in Provence and I thought it would be fun for the kids to play since "les boules" doesn't exist in our Canadian town! Any suggestions of where we could play? Parc Borely? And lastly a cafe to drink pastis and take in the harbour sights maybe?

We had planned to hit the beach (Prado recommended) another day but was concerned again about parking.

MERCI!
