Don't miss Cassis, amble peacefully around its sunny streets and be tempted by a mouthwatering, homemade ice-cream from Amorino...
Back in the Vieux Port , round off a marvellous day, while admiring one of Marseille's breathtaking sunsets from on board the "Petit Train" that will take you from the Vieux Port, up the hill to the emblematic Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde, with its remarkable panoramic view of the city below. Then for Dinner, have a real Bouillabaisse or grilled fish in a restaurant facing the sea at Le Vallon des Auffes, a typical small fishing port.
Calanques - a unique treasure!
Words are inadequate to the task of describing the Calanques! These inlets, like searching emerald fingers that lay claim to the rugged white rocks along the coastline, are certainly among of the world’s most famous shorelines. The Concierge will be both proud and pleased to help you with reservations for a boat trip: the best way to enjoy the Calanques close up! Unquestionably the experience of a lifetime.
