We took the little train from the out of town car park to the centre of the village to avoid the rather arduous walk down (and back up) the steep hill between the two. It gives you a great chance to see a bit more...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...More

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.

Bonjour Kate, There is parking at Parking Mimosas on Avenue Augustin Isnard. The train is 5 mins walk from there. Be aware that the parking is not very big, but should be ok out of season.

Hi, The first train is 11:15 a.m. This is what I've copied from the website - please note they seem a bit confused regarding their low season dates! Guided tour of 40 minutes to discover the history of Cassis vestiges... More
