We started from Cassis to Ciotat. The first few stops are the most interesting. So you can see Cassis from better views than Ciotat.

There are not words to describe the incredible views this 6 mile road between Cassis and La Ciotat offers, it is absolutely spectacular. An experience of a lifetime with stunning rock formations on one side, and unbelievably beautiful views and colors on the other.

We took the Route de Cretes when leaving Cassis. Luckily the mistral wind was not blowing and the road was open. The views over Cassis and on the other side toward La Ciotat are amazing! We stopped many times to take it all in. I wish we would have had enough time to walk along one of the many trails.

I am amazed we had never heard of this road before arriving in Cassis. The views are absolutely stunning - even the kids didn't object to stopping for photos every 100m!

We happened upon this as we drove south from a vacation rental in Avignon and what a surprise. Has to be one of the most beautiful drives in the world! It's on all the lists of top drives in the Mediterranean.

We drove this route around the cliffs from La Ciotat to Cassis on a very clear and sunny evening. It's a steep and winding drive, and you have to take it carefully (allow one and a half hours), but it's well worth it. It's a succession of stunningly beautiful views of the coast, the mountains and the countryside in between.... More
