Calanques Marseille Walking Holiday – the Essentials
One of the natural wonders of the Meditarranean Coast, the Calanques Massif at the gates of Marseille is a protected area of rugged natural beauty, with high cliffs and rocky creeks and inlets above the startling blue water of the Mediterranean. The Calanques Marseille natural park stretches from the edge of the historic city of Marseille, to Cassis a typical coastal village to the east. A “calanque” is a steep limestone inlet, and with their situation at the edge of Marseille, the Calanques are best reached on foot and are the ideal location for a walking holiday.
Marseille is an amazing historic city, a bustling melting pot of cultures and personalities. Built in Roman times and being a Mediterranean port and an international trade crossroads since then, you will discover in the historical districts all the multicultural influences that made this city such an interesting one. Walk through the Mediterranean atmosphere of the Vieux Port, wander the narrow streets with odours of local and exotic cooking or sample the lively nightlife with music and theatre – all within a walk of your hotel.
