Citadelle de Marseille
Montée du Souvenir Français
13007 Marseille


The topography of the Citadelle of Marseille, on a rocky spur overlooking the Old Port, and its restoration in accordance with the rules governing its classification as a Historic Monument, unfortunately make the site very difficult to access for wheelchairs and pushchairs (very steep slopes and slippery ground surface).

If you have any doubts about your ability to visit Fort St-Nicolas, please do not hesitate to contact us directly:
