Ask your guide for a tasting in one of Cassis wineries or take a short drive to a wine estate.

Your guide will explain to you the origin of those huge limestone cliffs diving in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean sea. One of the fjords was a limestone quarry during many centuries. Some of the stones of the Statue of Liberty in New York are coming from here. (Cruise ticket not included).
