Discover the Beauty of Cassis and Marseille
This morning depart for the village of Cassis by the Gineste and the Crests roads that will lead you to the outstanding site of Cape Canaille from where you will appreciate the exceptional view on the bay of Cassis and the Gardiole mountain range.
Cassis is a very ancient fishing port and the harbor is probably the most beautiful part of the village. You will have the possibility to board on a 45-minute boat trip (ticket not included) to discover 3 Calanques, steep-walled coves with tiny harbors or beaches at the end. Free time for personal discovery and lunch on your own during the day.
Then, drive back towards Marseille and enjoy a Panoramic tour of the city, including great photo opportunities at Notre- Dame de la Garde basilica. From this hill, enjoy a breathtaking view on the Phocaean city, the Frioul islands and If Castle. Drive on the Corniche Road, a symbol of holiday and outward sign of wealth for merchants and bourgeois from the 19th century who built magnificent houses with many ostentatious splendid features. You will then reach Saint-Victor abbey (11th century) that keeps the entry of the Vieux-Port (Old Port) of Marseille.
