    • 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?

      Toulon Jun 21, 2014 at 8:08 AM

      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.

    • In Provence for 2N3D

      Aix-en-Provence Jun 13, 2014 at 6:36 AM

      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! :)

      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.

      Visiting the lavender fields

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur 23 hours ago

      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.

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

    • Nice to Toulouse. Any must see stops/detours?

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jun 16, 2014 at 10:40 AM


      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.

      transportation to Villa Ephrusi

      I will have a port day in Monte Carlo on a Sunday. There is no bus service on Sundays and I would like to know how to get to my desired sites. I thought I could take the train to Villefranche. Then I would like to visit Villa Ephrusi and Eze. Are taxis the only way to get around? I could walk reasonable distances, but I am limited by time.

      We will be in Villefreche in May, on a cruise. What is the best transportaion to go from port to the Rothchild Palace? Also, would like to go to Monaco that day. Any suggestions on getting around?
      Last time we were there, we went to Nice and Monaco on our own, catching a taxi and we had a very tough time finding one in port and then in Monaco. I don't want to be stuck again.

      early morning transport to Nice airport?

      by knoxvillesam Online Now Mar 24, 2008 at 1:44 PM

      We (four of us) are staying for a week in St. Jean Cap Ferrat and have early morning flights (7:00 am) out of the Nice airport on a Saturday morning (June 7, 2008). We will have a rental car our week in St. Jean Cap Ferrat but are concerned about returning it before the rental agency opens that morning and would prefer returning it a day early and getting a taxi/limo from our condo in St. Jean Cap Ferrat to the airport that morning.

      Can anyone tell me the name of a limo or taxi company that can accommodate our needs? Or is this something that is done routinely and needs no advance reservation?

      Thanks in advance,

      Review of Residence Delcloy and Any Helpful Tips

      by gohuckleberry Online Now Jun 20, 2006 at 8:10 PM


      We are traveling to Nice in November. I found the Residence Delcloy as an affordable lodging possibility. However, I didn't find any traveler reviews. Just wondering if anyone is familiar with this Residence and can give us a review, opinion, or additional lodging information. Also, anything special going on @ the first November? We will be flying into Nice and staying just a couple of days before heading to Spain. Thank you!!
