visuel_ITALIA_CASSIS_2013_illustrator_quadriIt all seems to be happening this coming weekend in the pretty little port of Cassis.  There’s a ‘Village Italien’ which showcases the foods, wines and art of their twin town of Portofino.

At mid-day there will be cookery demos followed by tasting of wines from Piedmont and Portofino at 18:00hrs.

Saturday is the big day though with a parade of classic Vespas and Fiats around the town.  The vehicles will be on show afterwards along with Fiat’s latest range, right up to their new 500XL Trekking, ideal they say for ‘jeunes papas branchés’.   Thus ruled out, I will have to content myself with getting hold of one of these lovely posters.  Purchase of a poster or mug also buys you a tombola ticket – and proceeds go to charity.

Wed 6th – Mon 11th Nov in the Place Baragnon.

During the weekend there will also be an antiques and art market.CASSIS ANT13 Aff A3 Les Antiques & Modernes de Cassis will be held at the Oustau Calendal. 8th-11th, 10:30-18:30.  Entry 2€ for Telethon.

The town has a very good website: http://www.ot-cassis.com/en/ which has details of their Park and Ride scheme which will be working at the weekend only. 

Remember there is also their ‘petit train’  if you want to explore further.

It takes you on a town tour or out to the start of the calanques.  I believe this is its last weekend in operation before winter sets in.  Do check all these details with the tourist office….and enjoy Cassis!
