Cepheids are one of the most famous standard candles used to calibrate the Galactic distance scale. However, it is fundamental to develop and test independent tools to measure their distances, in order to reach a better calibration of their period-luminosity (P-L) relationship. We present here the first results obtained with the Integrated Parallax of Pulsation (IPoP) method, an extension of the classical Baade-Wesselink method that derives the distance by making a global modelisation of all the available data. With this method we aim to reach a 2% accuracy on distance measurements.Cepheid masses are also an essential key for our comprehension of those objects. We briefly present an original approach to derive observational constraint on Cepheid masses. Unfortunately, it does not lead to promising results.
