Overview
Cassis pebbly beaches, calanques, limestone cliffs and driving the spectacular scenic Route des Crêtes along the clifftops to Cap Canaille. Cassis discovery - the magic begins to works its wonders when we leave Marseille climbing up over the steep hillsides & tiny roads taking us to the picturesque fishing village of Cassis. The road bends its way between vineyards & pine woods. The charm of Cassis shows itself as you explore little alleyways & squares edged with colourful fishermen's houses. Cassis marks everyone's mind as they discover the harbour for the first time, the boats & welcoming café terraces. The drive between Marseille and Cassis is a spectacular one. Following the clifftop road - Route des Crêtes to Cap Canaille, towering cliffs reach a height of 394 meters. This winding road connects La Ciotat to Cassis, offering spectacular views and an exceptional panorama over La Ciotat's bay & Ile Verte beyond. Ahead, the vast massif of the Calanques towers over the sea.

Thank you so much for reviewing our tours here on TripAdvisor. It was a great pleasure to meet you and all your family and to have the opportunity to show you a little bit of what makes this region so special. Cassis and the coast around is spectacular and I hope the photographs sent to you will serve as a nice souvenir of your visit. Hope to have the opportunity to welcome you all back again sometime in the future. Christopher OohProvence
