I wish we had done this little tour on our first day, so we could see the surroundings of Cassis. I enjoyed peeking into the walled gardens with bougainvillea spilling over the side, on our way up and down and the views when we got...More

We did this on a whim just to kill some time and didn't realize that it went up to the first callonque. It was a great view and we had enough time to take a few photos. The tour itself was nothing special, it was...More

The train journey meanders through the streets of Cassis with a commentary in French and English. Half way around the circuit the train stops for 15 mins at one of the clanaques which gives you enough time to take a quick look. The train is...More

We took the little train from the out of town car park to the centre of the village to avoid the rather arduous walk down (and back up) the steep hill between the two. It gives you a great chance to see a bit more...More

Bonjour Kate, There is parking at Parking Mimosas on Avenue Augustin Isnard. The train is 5 mins walk from there. Be aware that the parking is not very big, but should be ok out of season.
