    • Shore Exhursion at La Seyne Sur Mer on August 19?

      Toulon Jul 4, 2014 at 11:22 AM

      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?

      Coming to La Ciotat via Navette 69

      La Ciotat Jun 25, 2014 at 1:25 AM

      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.

    • Provence - Avignon - St Remi - Cassis

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jul 14, 2014 at 2:44 PM

      Hello, we are a couple mid 30's traveling to Provence middle of August. We have full three days three nights and will have a car. We are planning to arrive to Avignon, and would like to see as much of the surrounding areas as possible. I understand that Provence area is large and three days doesn't cut it. The points of interest for us would be St Remi, Nimes, Arlington, Cassis. I believe all of these are fairly close, however for three day travel still far. What would you recommend as the top experiences i.e. are lavender fields a must see (given the timing in mid August, i believe their season is in July). Is there anything in these towns that stands out different from other places. (like for example in Albi/Carcassone those magnificent churches are very memorable and impressive). Is there a consortium on few places/things that are a must in the area? We are flexible in stopping by in different hotels while driving among these places. We love beautiful architecture, however, if we get a chance to see beautiful nature we are interested as well. Thank you in advance.

      How to put up a statue in Nice

      Nice Jul 1, 2014 at 7:21 AM

      No panic, I am not going to upstage the famous Apollo (though the old fountain looked more like a fountain, IMHO)

      A group of cultural enthusiasts approached me about a certain Vladimir Golenishchev, a renowned Egyptologist who lived in Nice and is buried at the Russian Orthodox cemetery in Caucade. They want to set a monument either on his grave or in the city. I vote for the latter, as the cemetery is located God knows where and is closed most of the week.
      Anyway, how does one go about permissions, etc.?

      Question 2 is:
      How does one find out the address of someone who lived in Nice in 1930s – 40s?

      Avignon Jun 25, 2014 at 1:59 AM

      Hello,

      Me an my girlfriend are arriving in Avignon end of June.

      We were thinking about renting a scooter to move around Luberon. I have few questions though:

      - Is scooter driving safe in the area for amateur scooter drivers like us? We both handle a bike just fine but have never been on a scooter before. I know if you can drive a bike, then there shouldn't be a a problem with scooters.

      - Is it convenient to drive a scooter with two people from Avignon to small villages like Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, etc or the distance is too big for a scooter?

      We were also considering renting a car, but those are very expensive and we want to save the extra 200 Eur between scooter rent and car rent.

      Thanks!

      Consigne Bagages at Marseille Saint-Charles

      Marseille Jun 25, 2014 at 1:48 AM

      Bonjour! I will be arriving at the Gare de Marseille Saint-Charles tomorrow afternoon and hope to check my suitcase at the consigne automatique before continuing to my next destination (a day trip to La Ciotat). I've read a lot about how this process works, how much it costs, where it's located, etc ... but I haven't been able to find any information about how much TIME it takes. I know that there is a metal detector/security procedure involved, so I imagine that it is not the speediest process in the world.

      My current ticket only allows me 20 minutes in between my arrival at Gare Saint-Charles and my departure via regional train to La Ciotat. Will this be enough time to check a bag at the consigne automatique and run to my train??

      Thank you,

      I heard someone saying that he went to see lavender fields a few days ago in Provence but didn't see anything as it was too late and he only got to see lavender at the lavender museum. Could it be possible that all lavender has been harvested already?! From what I've read, harvesting only starts from mid July. If you believe/know there are still lavender fields to see, could you tell me where exactly they are? Many thanks in advance!
