In today's episode Annie and Elyse discuss exploring coastal towns in Provence going east of Marseille. Surprisingly, this is a part of France that has a little bit of everything in a small area!
Within a distance of 35 kilometers as the crow flies between the East side of Marseille and Castellet you will find so many different types of great things to do! Great hikes in the Calanques. Boat rides to the Calanques. A visit to the old fishing village of Cassis. Maybe go see the yachts in La Ciotat? Or maybe a little wine tasting in the town of Bandol and its famous AOC? And if none of that sounds good, how about a stroll through the medieval village of Castellet?
See the Show Notes for details on how to visit the Calanques using public transportation.
Exploring Coastal Towns in Provence East of Marseille
Elyse went exploring coastal towns in Provence east of Marseille with a friend of hers who is a local. The two of them got to try everything locals like to do in the area and they recommend some great lesser-known beaches along the way. Elyse also lists all the must-sees and the casino you might want to pass on.
Who knew you could get so much diversity along that short stretch of coastline in Provence?
