      Closest public transport to cruise port

      Marseille May 11, 2015 at 3:10 PM

      I'm on a cruise (RCCL "Allure of the Seas") that spends a day in Marseille on 9 June 2015.

      What is the closest public transport stop to the cruise port? I am planning to use local public transport to have a brief exploration of the area,

      Thanks in advance for any tips.

      Quel est le plus proche arrêt de bus au port de croisière ? Je prévois d' utiliser les transports en commun d'avoir une brève exploration de la région ,

      Merci d'avance pour vos conseils .

      Hi, my husband and I are going to be in Bandol for 2 nights and I would like to know if it is necessary to book wine tasting with an organised group or can one just arrive at the Winery? Neither of us speak French unfortunately.

      What is the best way to visit the calanques if you're NOT based in Marseilles? Will be travelling from Carcassonne to Nice. Is it practical to stop off at Cassis and do a boat trip or hike out to the calanques?

      Voyages-sncf Tickets

      Marseille May 16, 2015 at 2:44 PM

      I hope to take a train from Marseille to Lyon - morning of 5th September. Last Saturday (9th May) I was on the Voyages-sncf site to see how near to that date they were taking booking. I found they were taking bookings up to Sunday 30th August. I thought that would mean today, a week later, they would possibly be up to my date but it's still only up to 30th August. I know it is usually only 3 months ahead you can book. I have asked that they send me a message when tickets go on sale but is that really likely to be another 3 weeks time?

      Cassis May 13, 2015 at 3:19 PM

      Coming in on a cruise ship into Toulon, we were planning to hop the train to Cassis and rent kayaks. Has anyone done this? Would you recommend it? I am a little worried about the transportation systems to and from port and possibilities of missing the boat.

      Best perched villages

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Apr 29, 2015 at 11:36 PM

      Bonjour! Any suggestions on the "best" villages-perchés within convenient driving distance of Nice / Cannes?

      By "best" I mean: very scenic, scenically located (panoramic views), good lunch options (perhaps restaurant with view; or good charcuterie / boulangerie), historically or culturally interesting.

      Ones that appear to fit the bill are: (roughly east of Nice) Eze, La Turbie, Peillon and Luceram, (roughly west of Nice) Le Broc, Biot, St Paul de Vence, Tourettes-sur-Loup and Gourdon. Any comments re these, or ones I've missed?

      Time-wise, (and driving either up or down the coast) how many perched villages would it be sensible to visit in one day?

      Any practical advice re visiting perched villages?

      Traffic congestion

      Nice May 7, 2015 at 6:57 PM

      I got some very good suggestions on the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur forum for smaller towns to see within easy reach of Nice.

      Based on that feedback, I am considering driving to Eze and La Turbie in one day, driving to Haut de Cagnes, St Paul de Vence and Tourettes-sur-Loup on another day, and Peillon and Luceram on a third day.
      Will be based in Nice near Mont Boron from about 18-22 September.

      I am only concerned about traffic, and seek advice on how congested it would be at this time and how best to avoid the worst of it?

      Thank you!

    • 4 day Provence Itinerary

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur May 2, 2015 at 9:47 PM


      My husband and I (both early 30's) Have 4 full days (Tues-Sat) in Provence and will be staying in Maubec with a car. We have never been and I am feeling overwhelmed by all of the places to see. I think we want to go to: Marseille & Cassis, Arles, Avignon, Lourmarin, St Remy, Gordes, L'isle sur la Sorgue. We would love to visit markets and find beautiful places to picnic, and maybe do some light hiking. I read Pont du Gard is a nice place to go, and maybe Gorges du Verdon but it looks like It might be too far. Which of these places can we bundle together and see in one day and do any need a full day? Any specific activities worth booking? The only thing scheduled so far is a Truffle Hunting tour for a couple hours Wednesday evening. We don't want to fill our schedule up too much, and want to make sure there is plenty of time to just enjoy the beauty around us so if we need to remove any of these places which do we cut out?

      Thanks so much for your help!


    • Last Bus to Vence Sunday

      by naroomadi Online Now Sep 2, 2010 at 8:54 PM

      Does anyone have any up to date information regarding Buses from Nice to Vence on Sunday's. I have read that the last bus leaves Nice at 6.30pm on Sunday - is this correct. If this is the case would it be best to get off the train at Cagnes Sur Mer and take a taxi from there. Will be travelling in mid October 2010.

      One of my fondest memories of Vence is the giant Bird Sculpture at a traffic circle just away from downtown. Does anybody know the exact street location of this bird sculpture? Thanks!
