TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Toulon Shore Excursion

This Toulon shore trip visits Marseille where you enjoy a driving tour with short stops at the most famous sites. 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 Marseille. Upon arrival in Marseille your first stop is the impressive Palais Longchamps. This beautiful water fountain was built under the reign of Napoleon III and was designed by one of the great architects of Marseille.

Your next stop is Le Vieux Port, or the Old Port, where the sea enters the town's embrace. You'll have a chance to walk the bustling outdoor fish market and see the vendors selling local handicrafts or the flower market (depending on the day of the week).

Then you drive to one of the most impressive locations in Marseille, Notre Dame de la Garde. This striking cathedral sits on the highest point in Marseille and from it you'll have stunning views over the whole city. Locals consider this church the guardian of the city.

Finally you'll take a drive along the coastal road of Marseille named after John F. Kennedy and then you'll stop at a typical old fishing port, le Vallon des Auffes, where you can soak up the local atmosphere and see the small fishing boats in the tiny harbor.

While you are in Marseille, 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 over sized 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.

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