Full description
Take a drive along the Gineste and the Crests roads to Cape Canaille to marvel at the exceptional view of the Bay of Cassis and the Gardiole mountain range, on this half-day tour from Marseille. The harbor in Cassis is the most beautiful feature of this ancient fishing port. Enjoy a panoramic tour of the city of Marseille on the return trip, including a stop at the basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde. From this hill you’ll have breathtaking views of the Phocaean city, the Frioul islands, and If-Castle. Drive along the Corniche Road, a visible indicator of the wealth of the merchants of the 19th century, who also built magnificent, ostentatious homes.

Nice drive through Marseille to Cassis, allowing time for sightseeing at some points in Marseille (e.g. Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde). In Cassis it is worth booking a boat tour through the Calanques - really fantastic! The last stop was the high cliffs of Cap Canaille with a great view of the sea. Our guide gave us a lot of background information and explained everything very well.

Tutto ha funzionato come un orologio svizzero: la nostra guida, la simpatica Florence, è stata estremamente professionale. Parla ottimi francese ed inglese, ed è stata anche una perfetta guidatrice. L'auto, una cross over Mercedes nuova, era estremamente comoda e pulita. Abbiamo imparato un sacco di cose nuove nel corso della nostra gita. Grazie, Florence!

Awesome views and great places to visit!

Marseille is a nice port to visit and Cassis is a picturesque village which we could not get enough of. The guide was very nice and friendly and very knowledgable not only about the areas we visited but all of provence. We had a rainy day but it still was splendid. The boat tour was great as well.. those beautiful calanques and blue sea!
