After joining your driver at the cruise ship terminal, travel along the Gineste and Crests roads to reach Cape Canaille and begin your tour. There, you'll take in the unparalleled majesty of the Cape's natural beauty, as the Cape maintains the highest sea cliff in all of France.

You'll have the opportunity to board a 45-minute boat tour of the region, on which you'd be able to pass by the three Calanques, or steep-walled coves, that shelter quaint harbors and beaches. In Cassis, you'll have free time to explore the picturesque town and enjoy a delicious French lunch.

Next, you'll enjoy a panoramic tour of the dynamic city of Marseille, France's third-largest metropolis. During your time in Marseille, you'll have a photo opportunity at the famed Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica, the city's most visited attraction.

From the hill, you'll peer out at a breathtaking view of the city, the nearby Frioul islands, and the fortified Chateau d'If. Then, drive along historic Corniche Road, which will take you to Saint-Victory Abbey, an 11th century fortified church that guards entry to the Vieux-Port.
