Sunday Bus from Marsailles to Aix

by travelfor2

Our cruise will stop in Marsailles on Sunday, November 29, and we'd like to take a bus to Aix and back for the day. I'm having trouble finding a bus schedule in English, since my French is very basic. It seems that a bus is the best idea, but maybe the train is better on Sunday. Can anyone help?

Re: Sunday Bus from Marsailles to Aix

There are trains from Marseille to Aix roughly every hour, also on sunday. So you can take the train. Just use the German Railway's planner for times:

(Yes, it is better to use the German Railways planner to plan train trips in France...)

Yes the German Railways planner is very good. You may be able to follow the French Rail website also :

www.voyages-sncf.com

I just looked at times for the Regional Trains that leave Marseille St Charles Station and arrive into Aix en Provence Centre. For example, there is one this Sunday leaving at 09.05 getting to Aix at 09.49 and for example one returning at 14.51 and reaching St Charles station at 15.22. But there will be later and earlier ones. Cost of return ticket is shown as €13.60 (over 25 and under 60)

However I think the bus is normally favoured as being quite quick and cheaper. I think the bus terminal at Marseille is next to the main railway terminus in the modern complex called the Halle Honnorat - Google this name to see some more info. The bus frequency is better.

Thanks for your help. My German isn't great, but it's better than my French!

Should anyone require it, the timetable for the local trains between Marseille and Aix-en-Provence (Centre) can be downloaded and printed from:

http://www.ter-sncf.com/Images/Paca/Tridion/FH12-Marseille-Aix-en-Provence-Pertuis_tcm27-23468.pdf

Caution : the main line station called Aix-En-Provence TGV is a couple of miles out of town.

The bus details can be found at

http://www.lepilote.com/img/_info/FH0050.pdf

That line runs very 20 minutes on Sundays.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is perfect. I have printed out the schedule and will take it with us.

Travel Tips for Aix-en-Provence

Cours Mirabeau is the center...

by SeaBreezeUSA

Cours Mirabeau is the center of the center, and the heart of Aix. The Cours Mirabeau is a beautiful tree-lined avenue, with one side lined with wonderful terrace cafés and bookshops. If you sit at only one French sidewalk café outside of Paris, it should be here, where the air is warm, the light sublime and the sidewalk alive. Large plane trees overhang the length of the avenue, giving day-long shade on hot summer days. Some of the more famous cafés are: Le Grillon [pictured here], Les Deux Garçons, La Belle Epoque and Le Café du Cours. For breakfast in Aix, one can buy spinach quiches and mushroom quiches at a shop low on the Cours Mirabeau, across from the cafés, and have them with our 'grandes crèmes' at Les Deux Garcons.

"Rene!" "You stupid Woman!"

by rickyvilla81

This is Roi Rene, who was King of Provence back in the middle ages. He is not to be confused with the cafe owner from Allo Allo, although you will from time to time see local waitresses trying to seduce him. This statue can be found at the end of the Cours Mirabeau.

Art for all, wall of art

by rickyvilla81 about Michel

So you want to paint and draw in Provence, eh? Aix is great for that. There are lots of art students here from all over, so therefore ther are lots of art shops. My particular favourite though is Michel, on the Cours Mirabeau. Here you can get everything for every type of art, as well as cards, diaries, postcards, calendars, that type of thing.
See here the Wall of Art at my appartmnent, a collaborative effort which brought colour to our kitchen...

Good Italian By Owners Of Pizza Stand

by ForestqueenNYC about CAPRI LA SUITE

Very pretty non Provencal decor. Presentation was very nouvelle. Manager and daughter-in-law, Melanie, was extremely friendly. Food was very good. There was an adorable toy Yorkie assigned to clean up all the crumbs on the floor. He was very efficient.

Tell Melanie that you read about her on VT. Ordered lasagna. It was very good. The tiramisu was excellent.

People Watching Bars

by ForestqueenNYC

Of course every bar or cafe in the historic, center is good for people watching and it goes without saying that all the bars, restos, and cafes on the Cours Mirabeau are. But it was while sitting at Bar de l'Horologie (and I am not even sure it was called that then) at Place de Verdun watching the people shop for their fruits and vegetables in 1994 that I decided to move from Florence to Aix.

The other bar that I liked was right next door. Again I do not know if it was called by the same name that it is today.

In the picture of the market at Place de Verdun, there are no people there at the time the photo was taken because there had been a bomb scare.
