We bought our tickets at the Visitor Bureau, but you can get them at the train starting point (alongside the harbor). A couple of things to be aware of: the train makes only one stop, at the Notre Dame Cathedrale, and moves pretty fast so...More

This little train took us on a big ride around this city saving our legs from walking up and down. The train ride gives you a overview of this beautiful city and you could go back to check out any particular spot.

You can take the local bus to the top of the hill to visit the church for about 2 euros, as opposed to the little train at 7euros, but you get a good commentary, it's more fun and a great way to see the town.

Regarding parking near the train I would not know. Marseille in fact has a bad reputation, just like all the port cities. Regarding traffic, I do not think you'll be stuck.

Circuit 1 of the Petit Train is the circuit that goes to Notre Dame de la Garde. You can hop off and hop on at Notre Dame only. There are no other stops on Circuit 1. The fare last month was 8 Euros per person.
