Drive on the Gineste and the Crests roads to reach the outstanding site of Cape Canaille from where you will get an exceptional view on the bay of Cassis and the Gardiole mountain range.
Cassis is a very ancient fishing port and the harbour is probably the most beautiful part of the village. You can board on a 45-minute boat trip (ticket not included) to discover 3 Calanques, steep-walled coves with tiny harbours or beaches at the end.
On your way back, you'll enjoy a panoramic tour of Marseille, including a photo stop at Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica. From this hill, you'll 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 the 11th century Saint-Victor Abbey that guards the entry of the Vieux-Port (Old Port).
