CAR RIDES AROUND CASSIS

In the heart of the Calanques National Park, Cassis is determined to preserve its region, its cultural and natural heritage for the benefit of its visitors and its inhabitants. To achieve this, Cassis has created and implemented the concept of “sustainable territory”.

From the Latin “Canalis mons”, which means “mountain, aqueduct water”, or Provençal “Cap naïo”, “the mountain that swims, which advances in the sea”, this cliff forms a Cape which culminates at 394 m above the sea, accessible by the Route des Crêtes.

Through the massif, this road leads from Cassis to La Ciotat. spectacular views mark out the 15 km course, the Cassis Golf course, the islands off Marseille to the west and the bay of La Ciotat to the east. We have nothing else to say: come and see for yourself!
