Marseille can be pretty hot during summer, but we found the ideal way to cool down a bit. We went on a boat trip to the calanques, a series of rocks between Marseille and Cassis. Just go to the old harbour where you can purchase your tickets. There are several options: a tour with just a few people, tours that include sunbathing in one of the calanques … More info can be found at the Marseille website. We took a tour that didn’t go ashore, and just had a look into the calanques. Nonetheless it was impressive: the blue water, the jagged rocks, the peaceful calanques … There are also tours which include sunbathing, but the boyfriend isn’t exactly fond of sunshine.
- The Mediterranean was pretty wild the day we took the trip, which I didn’t expect at all (people being sick, and we had to go inside the boat because the waves were too big). That was really cool 🙂
