This is the best way to see Cassis as it is a little town with no parking. You park on the outskirts of the town and get this reasonable bus/train to take you around and drop you off and return you to your own transport.

Bonjour Kate, There is parking at Parking Mimosas on Avenue Augustin Isnard. The train is 5 mins walk from there. Be aware that the parking is not very big, but should be ok out of season.
