Make the most of your stop at Marseille cruise terminal to discover the picturesque village of Cassis! This charming fishermen port with its unique calanques will definitely be a unique souvenir of your trip to Provence!

After meeting your A la Française driver-guide, jump in your minivan and start your day with a panoramic tour of Marseille. Enjoy a first stop at Saint Victor Abbey (eleventh century) at the entrance to the old Port of Marseille and take a nice picture! Continue on the road to the Corniche with its great view on the sea, symbol of holidays! All along the road, do not miss the beautiful houses built by wealthy merchants and bourgeois at the nineteenth century. You will then arrive in front of th basilica Notre Dame de la Garde. Situated on the top of a hill, you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Phocaean city, the Archipelago of Friuli and the castle of If... Another great spot for a second picture, cheese!

 

Did you know? Marseille is considered as the most ancient main city of France!

 

Then, through the Gineste and the Crests roads your driver guide will lead you to Cape Canaille from where you will admire an exceptional view over the bay of Cassis and the Guardiole mountain range.

 

Did you know? Cape Canaille is the highest maritime cliff in Europe! 


You are now in Cassis, a typical fishing port that is today one of the most beautiful and emblematic villages of Provence. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a 45-minute boat cruise (ticket not included) to discover the famous Calanques with their  small ports and lovely beaches.

 

Free time for lunch (not included) on your own during the day.
