This is an area of great contrasts; Marseille is France's third largest city and offers the visitor a plethora of places to visit and enjoy. It has always been a thriving port attracting traders from all over the Mediterranean. Now, tourists come from all over the world to visit the Old Port, the Maritime museum and to sample something of the many cultures which have made Marseille their home.
Cassis, by contrast, is an old fishing village with a delightful little harbour surrounded by restaurants and bars. A day or even just an evening in Cassis will delight you. Boat trips to view the aquamarine Calanques leave from here.
Inland is the Crau, a region of flat, green pastures quite different to the rest of this fascinating and varied landscape.
Wherever you visit, you can sure that the views, the geography, the history, the culture and - perhaps, most importantly! - the cuisine, will provide enduring memories.
