Whether you drive a car, a motorbike or walk the Route des Cretes (Road of Crests) eastward from the towns of Cassis to La Ciotat in Provence, France it is a journey that should not be missed. The 16 kilometer adventure starts from the base of Cap Cannaille, a 399 meter limestone cliff looming over Cassis Bay. Cap Cannaille is the highest sea-coast cliff in Europe. If you are lucky enough to be near the Cap as the sun goes down you will see it turn a lovely deep red.When you reach the top of the Cap Cannaille, stop and take in the breathtaking view of Mount Puget in Les Calanques, Cassis and the Mediterranean. Le Route des Cretes in Provence, France is narrow and winding, but viewpoints have been designated so visitors can stop along the way to appreciate the fantastic sights from Marseille to La Ciotat.A word of warning to anyone suffering from vertigo, the Route des Cretes is high and every turn brings a new unbelievable view, but if the wind gets too strong the road is closed.The Route des Cretes in France is one of many scenic pictures and well worth the drive when visiting the town of Cassis. The unbelievable scenery is something that one will never forget and once your vacation is over, your dreams are full of the beauty of Provence, France.Route des Cretes, Mediterranean, Les Calanques, Cap Canaille, Bouches du Rhone, Provence, France, Europe.
