The cruise ship is going to port at La Seyne Sur Mer 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on August 19. We are not sure whether we should visit Toulon (e.g. cable car ride and swim at the beach) or visit Bandol and Sanary Sur Mer. My teenage child would certainly love to have a swim for a couple of hours at a lovely beach. Any suggestions? If it is the latter, please provide travel information from La Seyne Sur Mer to Bandol and Sanary Sur Mer. Is it easy to take a cab from ther back to the port and how much would that cost?
I too am arriving by cruise ship to Toulon. From the reviews I have read, it seems that the cruise ship excursions are ridiculously expensive and not that great for this port. Is there a way to get to some of the nicer towns like Aix en Provence, Cassis, Castellet, etc. on our own? I don't know how far away they are, but I don't think we could do it
by taxi. Thank you for your advice.
Is it possible to get a taxi from villefranche port to take us to eze village
We are searching for what options might be available to visit the surrounding area and smaller villages near LÍsle sur la Sorgue. We will be there for two weeks, first part of Oct. I would appreciate any information or advice.( No, I do not want to rent a car.)
Hello everyone! :)
My sister and I will be in Provence for 2 nights and 3 days. We are here especially for the Lavender season. We are thinking of renting a bike and exploring the fields. And sneak in a little trip to the arch at Ardeche river.
So my question here is where are the most luscious lavender fields in Provence, accordingly I want book an accommodation close by since we want to spend most of the trip exploring the fields.
Thanks a bunch! :)
Bonjour! I'm heading down to La Ciotat tomorrow for a very brief sejour with a friend. It will be my first time in the town and I'm very much looking forward to exploring the Vieux Port and beautiful calanques.
I have, however, run into a bit of a situation with transport. I will be arriving from Grenoble at the gare de Marseille Saint-Charles, where I plan to check my rather cumbersome suitcase for the weekend. I had planned to simply take a regional train from Marseille to La Ciotat, but have since realized that the train would drop me off at the Gare SNCF in La Ciotat, which is a bit of a hike from where I'd like to be.
I'm now planning to take the La Ciotat/Marseille navette (ligne 69) that runs in between the two cities. It seems to be the best option, as it is inexpensive and would drop me off at the Gare Routiere in La Ciotat, right in the center of town! However, the navette departs NOT from the Gare Saint-Charles, but from the Halte routiere sud in Marseille. Could anyone tell me about this bus stop? How to get to it from the train station? (It looks like there should be a M1 metro stop in the area.) How long it takes to get there? Where you can buy tickets?
Je vous remercie par avance! Thank you in advance.
We are in Paris right now and going to nice for 5 days on Sunday. We are a 26 yr old couple. I have heard hikes are great there. We are also going for a day trip to Monaco. Any thoughts on a day trip???? Any boat trips??? Any trains to anywhere close by??
Thanks so much
My wife and I are considering a trip to Provence next summer with one of the main considerations being seeing the blooming lavender fields. I have some input from a friend who has been there and suggests St. Remy de Provence as our base. I understand that the peak of the season is from mid-June to mid-July. I just wanted to see what ideas others of you may have about it.
Because my dutch friends want to see the football match tomorrow I decided to go with public transport to Nice from Brignoles and find my way to the airport later in the day. However I am unable to find out witch stop I should use to be as close as possible to the // depart trains touristique// at quay des etats uni., It says Nice Albert 1 and Nice Gare Routiere, but an english site states that this does not exist .On the site of Lignes dazur I cannot find no 20 Marseille Aix en Provence/ Nice. I am unable to walk large distances., Could anyone advise me where to get of the bus . I understand that bus 98 will take me to the airport later in the day. That bus is near to the train touristique., Thanks so much for your answer. Louise
Hello, I'm Richard and here are my two questions:
Where can I get a water filter? the type that you keep in your kitchen and just fill from the tap.
Can I take a ferry to Pisa or a bus? if both, which would be most cost efficient?
Thank you all in advanced...
I am going to nice soon with my family and would like to visit castle hill.
Can anyone confirm/ deny if there are toilets at the hill, if so where? I am finding the info online conflicting and would appreciate some first hand experience. Is there anywhere to get refreshments?
Thanks very much.
We will be staying in Arles the first week in July and found out about the Theater Festival in Avignon. Should we get tickets, are tickets needed to do anything at the event? What is a must see at the festival? Is there a program in English available? Thanks.
We are driving from Nice to Toulouse to meet with other friends and continue our journey to Spain. Initially we were planning to drive straight to Toulouse but now we realized that we have about 2.5 days to complete the drive to Toulouse. Are there any must see stops/restaurants/cheese houses/detour trips/side trips on the way that are not to be missed? We are already planning to cover Montpellier and probably Nimes on our way. We are also considering driving through Parc naturel régional du Verdon.
