When your cruise ship docks in Marseille, enjoy a shore excursion to see the best sights of the city. Meet your private guide at 9am at Marseille cruise pier or your Marseille hotel, then hop into your air-conditioned minivan to begin your 8-hour tour.
First, visit Cassis — a historic fishing port nestled along the Mediterranean coastline. Here, enjoy free time to soak up the sunshine on the sandy beach, explore the streets and alleys, or take a 45-minute boat tour (own expense) to the peaceful UNESCO World Heritage–listed inlets along the coast.
Afterward, travel out to the clifftops and admire panoramic views over the bay from Cape Canaille — Europe’s tallest sea cliff. Capture the views on camera, then head to a local winery nestled among the vineyards.
Here, sample four different wines produced in the Cassis region — including red, rosé, and white wines — and gain insight into the delicate flavors in your glass. When your wine-tasting comes to an end, return to your starting point in Marseille to conclude your tour.
