This charming seaside resort is snuggled at the foot of a tallest Europe cliff called Cap Canaille. Cassis is a wonderful place with a picturesque fishing port lined with cafes and restaurants.
The city around the port offers elegant villages’ houses in the old quarters, and villas on the hills, without ever losing sight of the Mediterranean Sea.
You should not miss the route des Cretes high above, which links Cassis to La Ciotat.
Above these cliffs are the famous “calanques” that go all the way to Marseille.
In the calanques, you have the possibility to make a ramble all along the 20 kms coast, to climb, or to visit the different ones by boat from Cassis.
