When visiting Marseille, a visit to the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde is a must. Standing at the peak of an outcrop, on the south side of the port, you cannot miss it. Dating back to the 1850’s, explore the intricate decorations, murals and mosaics, and look out for the shrapnel marks from WWII. The views from the basilica are amazing, making the trip a great way to get your bearings in this beautiful city.
