Embark on a vibrant Shore Excursion from Sanary sur Mer Port of Call to Visit Fabulous Provence villages !

Pick up at your Cruise ship in Sanary sur Mer

Today, we will come and pick you up directly at your ship. Meet your English speaking driver/guide who will go over the itinerary and program of this private tour with you. Then start to make your way to the historical center of Sanary.

Walking tour in Sanary Sur Mer

Start your tour by a visit to Sanary-sur-Mer. The pretty harbour is the centre of activity in the town and a lovely place for your promenade. As you stroll around the port you will notice the numerous colourful small boats.

There are 100 traditional fishing boats kept here, some more than 100 years old and some listed as historic monuments, and typical fishing boats of Provence called "pointus". The port also still contains an active fishing fleet and you can buy fresh fish on the quai here each morning. 

Among the buildings that line the port you can see the Church of Saint-Nazaire, built in the centre of Sanary-sur-Mer in the 19th century on the site of an earlier church. The building has an interesting byzantine style facade, and inside you can see various orthodox christian frescoes - these are beautiful paintings, large and colourful, so make sure you go in for a look - as well as an imposing organ.

You will also see the square 13th century tower (behind the Hotel de la Tour at the end of the port) that was once part of an important defensive system for the town - it was around this tower that the village originally developed in the middle ages.

Free time in Cassis

After your exploration of Sanary, you will continue heading to another typical fishing port named Cassis. Discover this cute small fishing port as well as the calanques listed by Unesco as a world heritage national park. The land & sea area is known for its white cliffs and turquoise water.

Then make a picture stop at the highest sea cliff in Europe that is named Cape Canaille where you will enjoy a stunning view over the bay. Enjoy some free time for personal discovery, relax on the beach or if time permits, board a motor boat for a 45-minute cruise (tickets not included) to admire the natural beauty of the local creeks (Calanques).

Panoramic short stop in the village of Le Castellet

Finally, finish your tour with a short stop in the hilltop village of Castellet. This superb little feudal village perched on the top of its promontory will enchant you with its typical Provencal picturesque setting. 

You can enter Le Castellet via 2 fortified gateways then just let yourself wander along the small streets, past the potter and the leather craftsman's workshops, the perfumed candles, ceramics, and jewellery alongside the art galleries and ice-cream sellers.

After your tour, you will be driven back to your cruise ship in Sanary sur Mer.
