... and trees instead of taking the winding path down the calanques, it was completely worth it once we got there. It was also a great workout, which I really need because of all of the croissants and baguettes I've been eating. I do not understand how these French people eat so much bread and cheese but are still so skinny. I've attached some pictures from the calanques for ...
... when their order is ready. I got a salame pizza, which
was absolutely delicious! After lunch we hiked up to Notre-Dame de la Garde, which is a church that was built on the highest natural point in Marseille. Although I had already been there once when I first arrived in Marseille, going
back on a clear day gave me a view of Marseille that took my breath away. Later that evening we went out to dinner and I was ...
... way around the Port to have a glance at the Cathedral de Major, and the Jardin du Pharo on the opposite bank that was built by Napoleon. Caught the free boat that crosses the port, to get back to the van and to see it from the water.
Drove to Arles to park up for the night relaxing next to river Rhone, sharing the spot with 9 other campers. ...
Had a lazy morning soaking up the sun. decided to spoil our selves and enjoy some vegemite and cheese toasties for brunch. This may seem basic but when living on a travelling budget this becomes luxury! Realising we were right on a coastal point with ocean either side of us, we went for a stroll around the area. By the time we took off it was mid afternoon, drove further along the coast before parking up for the night in Gemenos.
This morning we started out in two vans at 8:30, first traveling to Aix-en-Provence. The Romans were here many centuries ago because of the water underground. We felt water in a fountain in the city and it was warm water straight out of the ground and there were many more in the area. We walked through the old town area. Our group of 6 stopped for some coffee and then ...

Historical Traveler Reviews New Hotel Vieux Port Marseille
I stayed here with my husband during the first weekend of September. The room was cosy and classy, and the bathroom was quite large. We got a deal for 90€ per night, though in retrospect we should have taken the 104€ per night deal, which had breakfast included. If not included, the breakfast is 11€ per person. Though no cooked food, it does offer cold meats, cereals, fruit, etc. and was better than I'd expect for the price.
Following a research on the tripadvisor website, we have selected the New Hotel Vieux Port in Marseilles due the very positive previous reviews concerning this hotel.
This hotel was the best thing in Marseille
I didn't much care for Marseille, but as a budget travellor that has stayed in 2/3 star hotels all around the world this was the best hotel ever! The themed floors add such a nice touch. The bathrooms felt like you were in a luxury hotel. The view depends on the room - you had to twist your head but still you COULD see the port and let's face it - there is not much apart from the port. Location was superb - metro, port, evrything at your fingertips. Not sure if I would be this excited if I didn't get it for half price but from what I paid it was tremendous. I definitely recommend.
Very good place to stay
My wife and me, together with our 1-year old stayed in the New Hotel Vieux Port for 3 nights in May.
The location is among the best in the city, very close to the port, the Canabiere boulevard and a Galleries Lafayette shopping mall (which is equipped with a large garage).
The hotel does not leave the impression of a typical downtown tourist-hotel, as rooms are amazingly decorated, very clean, well equipped and air conditioned.
Breakfast was excellent and service was very kind.
We will choose it again for our next stay in Marseille.
Booked an internet special for one of their cheaper rooms for two nights including breakfast for 99 euros per night for 2 people.
Just stayed at this hotel last week. What a great location! Steps to the main drag, shopping, metro, old port, and a plethora of restaurants! Had a bit of difficulty finding it as it's on a street that's only 1/2 block long - but look for the church, it's right behind it. Don't be fooled by the tiny reception area. Rooms have been recently decorated according to themes. We booked two rooms - one was decorated in the warm colors of Provence and the other was in an Asian theme. Both were spacious, comfortable, and had sparkling clean bathrooms. Very friendly staff.
Great Atmosphere and Location
It may be a little hard to find, but the taxi driver didn't have much problem. The service was excellent! My room was amazingly larger than I expected. Each floor has it's own atmosphere. The second floor has a Moroccan flavor and I was quite comfortable. Just steps away from the port this was an ideal location and great value for the money. Next time I'm in Marseille I'm definitely staying here.
Great Location - once you've found it...
Great price, location just a few steps from the waterfront. Room large, comfortable and v. attractively decorated.
Downside was that hotel is difficult to find (we had to drive around block 3 times to figure out how to get to the hotel) and only parking is in nearby parking garage (something their website did not mention...). Oh, and skip the breakfast - a complete waste of money!
