What's Cassis on the east for the Marseillais, L'Estaque is on the west. It's still a direct suburb, but it offers also direct view on Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. And easy going life with fresh seafood.

“If you come in Marseille you have to get there ! Notre dame de la Garde is a church dedicated to Marie which is on the top of a higher mount in Marseille. From a Christian site, it has become for all Marseille inhabitants, a kind of symbol of the city whatever religion they follow, if ever they follow one. Most important, from its foot you can see a panorama of all the city, it is really wonderful. You can get there by car, bus, touristic train, taxi , but remember that the last hundred meters have to be walked on foot and to make a wish once up there ! ”

“From the Réformé church (up the Canebière) you can follow the Boulevard Longchamp where you can see nice example of old upper-class buildings to arrive to Palais Longchamp. The palais is worth visiting though it won't take you long. You can visit the "musee des beaux arts" as well as the natural history museum.”

“There are many beaches in Marseille, but the best beaches to swim are definitely the ones on Frioul Island, at 45 minutes by the ferry from Vieux Port (the roundtrip ticket costs 11,10 euros). On this beautiful island, you will find many little creeks with a wonderful view over Marseille.”
