Located in the St. Charles district right in the heart of the city, Gare Saint Charles has been an important part of Marseilles since it was opened in 1848. The 11th busiest station in France, it serves over 16 million passengers each year.
Back when the station was first built, it was a little way outside the city, which grew up around its seaport. The station was built on a hill overlooking the town, and an ancient cemetery had to be cleared to make way for it. The hilltop location of the rail station was linked to the rest of the city by the construction of the grand staircase in 1925. This staircase, decorated with statues inspired by the destinations travelers can reach from Marseilles Port, has since become an icon of the city and makes an impressive introduction to this Mediterranean town.
The station continued to grow throughout the 20th century, finally reaching its current size with 14 platforms. In 1983, the station was bombed by legendary international terrorist Carlos the Jackal. The station grew even larger in 2001, when the high-speed TGV rail line cut the journey time to Paris and other French cities from Marseilles. Now, St. Charles functions as a transportation hub for the entire Provence region and contains a busy bus station as well as the train station.
It's just a short trip down the grand staircase from the train station to Marseille's center. And once there, you'll find yourself surrounded by things to do. One of the largest cities in the country, Marseille nevertheless has an atmosphere all of its own. As an important port for thousands of years, Marseille has always been a place where different worlds collide.
Check out one of France's most notable public gardens, the Palais Longchamp. Located just to the east of the train station, this landscaped park and its impressive historic monument date back to 1869 and are a perfect place for photographs.

Enjoy the atmosphere in the old Port of Marseilles. This harbor has been a center of trade for over 2,000 years, and a large part of what has given Marseilles its unique character. Surrounded by restaurants and bars located in former warehouses, the harbor is also home to a fish market where you can pick up the catch of the day or simply watch the boats come and go.
Learn more about the history of the city at the Marseilles History Museum. The city has been around since the time of the Phoenicians 2,600 years ago, so it's no surprise that this is the largest city history museum in France.

Notre Dame de la Garde: One of Marseille's top attractions, the church of Notre Dame de la Garde, located on a high hill above the city, should not be missed.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
