Discover Cassis: Half Day Tour from Marseille

1. Discover Cassis: Half Day Tour from Marseille

Cassis France is just a 30-minute drive from Marseille and well worth a day tour. You’ll travel up to Cap Canaille, the highest maritime cliff in France, with a great panoramic view. Then, you'll be dropped off at the vineyards of Cassis, before exploring the mountains, and the ship-building town of La Ciotat via the scenic crest road. Next you can choose to do a bit of shopping or simply relax at a café on the docks with a glass of pastis or wine. You may take a boat from the harbor to the new National Park of the Calanques, considered to be a tourist must-see (optional). The limestone inlets with their clear blue water are extremely popular with visitors.

Discover the must-see Saint Nicolas and Saint Jean forts, and the "Bonne Mère" Basilica, loved by locals. Walk along the Old Port before reaching the oldest house of Marseille, one of the only survivors of the sad second world war. Enter the heart of the Panier district and notice a change in scenery. The houses are old, narrow, and colorful, and there’s a village feeling right here in the heart of the city. You will learn the local culinary specialties such as the famous "bouillabesse", and the recipe for Marseille soap. As you stroll through the neighborhood, you can admire a lot of street art.

La Ciotat: From Crests to Caves Treasure Hunt Hike

3. La Ciotat: From Crests to Caves Treasure Hunt Hike

Choose between 2 options, normal or expert. The expert is the same trail as the normal, but with 1km more, it is more difficult because there is a 2.5m vertical passage to descend. But it is the one that offers the most exceptional views. On D-Day, you meet the organizer at the starting point. He will give you a scroll and a compass. The parchment represents a cave, with a cape. It's up to you then to move in the right direction and find this cave in total autonomy. Once found, you will have to search there for a new scroll that will show you the next cave... and so on. Until the last one which contains the treasure. At the end, you find the organizer to whom you will give the equipment, and you can leave with the contents of the treasure and superb photos.
