A Day in Cassis


The Port town of Cassis, famous for its white wine and  its inlets called Calanques, is located just east of Marseille. The sheltered harbor is the perfect year round destination for leisurely days on the beach, boat tours and scuba diving. The sidewalks of the town are made of the Cassis stone quarried locally since the antiquity and used for the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. The drive to the top of Cap Canaille, part of the Provence Confidential itinerary, offers a spectacular panoramic view of the village below.
