You will have the chance to sample some local delicacies such as “calissons” and taste some wine at La Maison Perrin.
After a marvelous morning spent in Aix-en-Provence, we will transfer by coach or van from Aix to La Ciotat. We will drive along the sea front with views of the magnificent bay until we arrive at the old port.

We will head away from La Ciotat via the famous Route des Cretes, a mountain road that hugs the coast line giving you spectacular scenery on the way to Cassis.
Cassis is a seaside town well known for it’s stunning calanques and steep cliffs. At it’s top nestles Cassis Castle overlooking the bay and old port.
