Calanques & Route des Crêtes

Jump to last reply

We are driving from Nice to La Ciotat/Cassis mid September. Via Michelin gives 2h21 as the driving time to La Ciotat, and we will leave first thing in the morning. The original plan was to drive the Route des Crêtes en route to Cassis with a piquenique along the way. (Stu says to allow 1/2 day for the RdesC.) The more I read about the Calanques, I'd really like to take the boat out to see at least 3 of them.

My question is this: Should we drive straight in to Cassis to see the Calanques first? (Wondering about afternoon boat availability.) It seems the Route des Crêtes would also be fabulous late afternoon/sunset. Then we would see it going both east AND back west!

Please advise. We are only staying in Cassis one night, & would like to depart fairly early the next day to spend time in Aix. (41 min drive)

It will be great either way, but I would love to hear from those of you who have done this.
Thank you!
