The Vieux port
It was built 2600 years ago by sailors from Phocée (Greece) who found this sheltered calanque similar to their country. It was an ideal location to base a rich trading post that would become a big city. The port has now 3500 spots, and it is very practical: mechanics workshops, shops, etc. It has not been used for commercial vessels since 1853. You can get there by bus, metro from the train station or the airport. There are many bars and restaurant, and a seaside walk. It is possible to cross the vieux port for free, by the smallest ferry line in the world : the ferry boat.
