“He who has seen Paris and not Cassis has seen nothing”. Even if this saying by French poet Frederic Mistral seems exaggerated, it nevertheless reflects the interest of this seaside gem, tucked at the foot of the Cape Canaille Cliff. A former Roman trading post, Cassis oozes charm, with its café-lined quay, jagged little coves and enticing beaches. When you get here, you’ll get some free time to browse and shop after a short introduction by your guide. Later on, you’ll reboard the coach for a 30-minute drive to Cap Canaille - Europe’s highest sea cliffs which offer up incredible photo opportunities.
This is a great introduction to two wonderful but very different cities - Avignon of Medieval fame and the port city of Marseille. Your guide will show you all the main ‘must -see’ attractions and tell you about the rich history of both places. You’ll also enjoy a generous portion of free time for lunch and shopping. Make sure you’ve got your camera to hand for some great photo opportunities of Avignon’s most dominant feature - the massive ramparts that enclose the city. Marseille, meanwhile, is France’s biggest port and second largest city. Explore its narrow stepped streets and quiet squares and see its fine 18th-century facades, which contrast nicely with the bustle of the shopping district in the south. It’s an unforgettable day out.
The cosmopolitan city of Marseille is France’s second biggest city. You’ll start your day with an orientation of the city, which includes views of the Old Port and St. John & St. Nicholas Fort. Then you’ll carry on to the imposing Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica from where you can enjoy a remarkable view of Marseille. Other sights you’ll tick off your list include the St. Victor Abbey, La Major Cathedral and the beautiful mansions and villas lining the Corniche.
