“Beautiful views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

I have done the most scenic beautiful views from La Ciotat to Cassis on my way to Saint Tropez I could not resist to stop on the road many times You can have beautiful views of Calanques both sides of Cassis and near by La Ciotat I also stopped and walked for a while one of the trails the views of the mountains are spectacular both sides of the road The best part of the road is right in the middle of the 2 cities Try to drive carefully because the road does not have 2 lanes and has many curves I would go by to this road again and this time of the year you can see many wild flowers on the side of the road it is a must see road if you go by Cassis Another cute small and pretty village

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

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!

“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

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.

“Absolutely stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

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.

One of the most spectacular and underrated attractions of the area.
