Being a little village in a country with one of the world’s most famous cities must be difficult.
While Paris receives the most of the attention (and the majority of the tourists), astute travelers, both French and foreign, arrange trips to some of the country’s lesser-known sites, many of which are little towns.
The little town of Cassis, located between Marseille and Toulon in southern France, is often overlooked in favor of glitzier
beach resorts (we’re looking at you, Saint-Tropez).
Some people, however, overlook a charming fishing harbor surrounded by sheer limestone cliffs and pebbly beaches.
The town itself features a pastel-colored palette of buildings and a diverse array of sidewalk cafes ideal for people-watching.
