TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Toulon Shore Excursion

This full day Toulon shore trip visits the famous city of Aix en Provence where you enjoy a driving tour and a visit to the old town. Then in the afternoon you visit Cassis where you have the option to take a boat trip to see the Calanques.

After meeting your guide at the pier in Toulon, you depart for Aix-en-Provence. Upon arrival, you enjoy a driving tour of the city center including the Cours Mirabeau. This beautiful tree lined street is world famous and well known for its monumental fountain and popular cafes. You then pass through the Quarter Mazarin, with its unique 17th century chessboard pattern and many aristocratic townhouses with their Baroque facades and beautifully carved wooden doors.

Much of the old town, or Vieil Aix, is pedestrian-only and you will enjoy a walk through it. The labyrinth of narrow streets lead you to the 17th century Town Hall, the Archbishop's Palace, and St. Sauveur Cathedral with its delightful Romanesque cloister.

While you are in Aix en Provence, you have free time for lunch.

This afternoon you have the chance to visit Cassis. Cassis is the type of unspoiled fishing village that first lured the jet set to the Riviera years ago. Surrounded by white limestone cliffs, umbrella pines, and vineyards descending directly into the sea, Cassis is friendly and unpretentious. The port is a curve of pastel houses and colorful wooden fishing boats in front of the outdoor terraces of seafood brasseries. There are few designer shops in the narrow streets, and no oversized yachts to gawk at. Instead you're likely to see fishermen, locals, and international tourists who shun the overcrowded beaches of St. Tropez.

While in Cassis, you can choose to explore the quaint town on foot, or if you wish, you can take a boat trip to marvel at the crystalline azure coves called Calanques and the smooth white cliffs that surround them. Don't miss this opportunity to see this unspoiled natural beauty and feel the spray of surf brush your cheeks. Please Note- This optional boat trip is not included. Expect to pay 16 Euro if you wish to take the boat trip.

After your time in Cassis you return to the pier in Toulon.
