Experience of a life-time, even if you just drive it. But get out of the car at least once to be overwhelmed by the views. Absolutely spectacular. So far we haven't been to the Calanques by boat (always there the wrong time) but this is...More

Whilst driving thru the Gorge I saw this route and went for it. Excellent drive with great views, if you’re lucky you’ll see dozens of eagles circulating below u, a fantastic sight

Make sure you go on a clear day if possible. Outstanding views, not a very long drive and definitely worth the time!

While coming from Cassis we took the Route des Cretes to return home. The route is not always accessible due to possible heavy winds. The winding and turning road provide some scary moments for some of us but the views were breathtaking! Plenty of opportunities...More

If you have a car, this is a great place to come to escape the crowds of Cassis and see the Med from a different angle. There are tons of parking areas with scenic viewpoints, and a few where you can take a short hike...More

If you find yourself in Cassis with a car, it would be a huge mistake to not drive along this costal route. There are many parking areas where you can pull over and take in the gorgeous views. Absolutely breathtaking!

Cotes D'Azur coatal drive right along the Mediterranean with breathtaking views and hairpin turns. A jaw dropping site around every bend, two- way traffic and busses hold onto your hats.
