The Calanques

If you wish to visit the famous Calanques of Marseille, you should take the Canebière street and walk until you find the bus stop 'Canebiere Saint Ferreol'. Then, take the bus number 21 (not the 21B) until you reach Luminy, the last stop. Go up to the end of the road, you will find the path going to the Calanques.

You can obtain more info about Marseille at the Tourist office located near the Vieux port metro station: on the Canebière street.
