      Question asked today lost.

      by Sandypaws3 Online Now Feb 1, 2015 at 10:28 PM

      I already asked this question today, but I think it was lost. We will be based in Aix-en-Provence for about 5 1/2 days. We arrive on a Saturday late in the afternoon, and we are thinking about taking a day trip to Marseille the next day. However, we are debating between that and just enjoying Aix en Provence that day. On Monday, we will take a day trip to Nice by bus. On Tuesday, we're taking a day trip to Avignon, and on Wednesday we're taking a mini-van tour to Arles, St. Remy, and Les Baux. Thursday, we plan to spend in Aix. The next day we head to Paris on the TGV for two nights and fly out the next morning. So, on the one hand, I feel like it would be a shame NOT to see Marseille, but on the other, I feel like taking a little more relaxed trip by staying in Aix is the better plan. Any thoughts?

      We will be visiting Aix en Provence from the 15-19th of December. Do you think that 4 full days in Aix are too much?

      If yes, can you kindly suggest any place nearby which is worth visiting. Please note that we will be using public transport only.

    • Travel to Aix-en-Provence from St. Tropez

      by grigio Online Now Sep 10, 2014 at 4:12 PM

      I am trying to get from St. Tropez to Aix in early October. But from what I have read, there is no train station in St. Tropez and the only bus I could located (Line 36) only runs in the summer. After that, the bus starts in Le Luc, Le Cannet to Aix. I am wondering if I am reading that correctly, but more importantly, looking for any suggestions (other than renting a car one-way) to get from St. Tropez to Aix. Many thanks.

      Electric car rental

      by sueannlee Online Now May 9, 2013 at 1:08 AM

      hello! i'm renting a car for my trip in Provence and I have 2 qns..

      1. I'm taking a train from Paris and arriving at Aix-en-Provence TGV. Is there a difference between Aix-En-Provence TGV and Aix-En-Provence Gare TGV? Is this the same place?

      Reason i'm asking is because I was on autoeurope and there were 2 stations under Aix-en-Provence TGV. Strange.

      2. Is it practical to rent an electric car? (Citroen C-Zero). Its a lot cheaper but i'm just wondering if i'll have any issues with the charging, especially if we're driving from village to village.. not sure how accessible are charging stations over in Provence.

      Any help would be hugely appreciated, thanks!

    • Driving from Aix to Monte Carlo

      by teganm Online Now Jun 15, 2012 at 8:42 PM

      We are driving one way to Monte Carlo and staying there for 4 days and using it as a base to explore the area (Nice, Eze, etc). Since we only have a car the one way we want to take a scenic route and make stops along the way (how many will depend on how long it takes to get there.
      In addition, we can explore the different towns more thoroughly by bus once we are settled into Monte Carlo.
      Any suggestions on which route, stops,etc? We heard the Grand Corniche is the best of the 3.
      We leave Aix en Provence on Sunday July 1st.
