This typical tourist train takes you round the town and gives French and English commentary, about how this place was a Roman settlement and still has their influence. Then it heads along the coast to the Clancles end point and stops against the quayside with beautiful views of the bay. The cafes are are very expensive. The trip costs €7/head... More

The top end of Cassis is up a rather steep hill so take the train and the opportunity to see a bit of the rest of the town. It goes to the nearest calanque and you get off for 10 minutes to have a stroll and look around.

This is the best way to see Cassis as it is a little town with no parking. You park on the outskirts of the town and get this reasonable bus/train to take you around and drop you off and return you to your own transport.

We went to Cassis and parked outside the city. We took this little train and my little girls loved it. It was really nice.

This was our third Petit Train ride having traveled on the trains in Aix en Provence and Marseille. At 7 Euro for a 50 minute trip it's good value however this trip was not as interesting as our previous trips. It was a climb up the hill through the suburbs past the houses of the rich and famous. it was... More

The tour was a good introduction to Cassis. We enjoyed the easy ride and the 15-minutes stop at the calanque, it was beautiful! We were able to navigate ourselves back to the calanque the next day.

We arrived in Cassis by cruise ship in July. The little town was flooded with french tourists and the beaches were jammed. My 18 yo daughter and I did not want to sit on a crowded beach so we walked around, had lunch and decided to take this little train ride. It was about 40 minutes and it took you... More

We did this on a whim right before it left. We had been in Cassis for a day and didn't see half of what we saw on here. One 10 min stop at a little beach/Rock area and then back to town. Really neat way to see the small village and learn a little about it. Relaxing not having to... More
