Bus travel

by tgaram

I wish to travel from AIX en provence to Monte Carlo. Is it better by bus or train.

I wish to travel on the morning of 29th October for arrival by mid afternoon.

Your advice thanks

Terry

Re: Bus travel

by Agraichen

My thought would be train. The French trains are extremely fast and even if they take a longer route would be faster than a bus over that terrain.

Re: Bus travel

French Railway at www.voyages-sncf.com tells you there is 1 TGV train that day, leaving at 14.10 hrs and arriving 3.41 hrs later at 17.51.
Advance reservations needed.

When you use www.voyages-sncf.com, fill out the required data and click 'Horaires', which gives you only schedules.
Clicking 'Reservez' does too but you also get the whole reservations/paying rimram.

I'm baffled that there are no regional train options (slower perhaps, but cheaper and no advance booking. I'm still looking...

You could also use regional trains (a bit over 4 hours), it's not direct but voyages-sncf suggests : Aix -> Marseille, Marseille -> Nice, Nice -> Monte-Carlo

Travel Tips for Aix-en-Provence

Sipping and Watching

by skydivefred

All year round, you can have a drink at a café on the "Cours Mirabeau". It is a wide and famous avenue a bit like the Champs Elysées in Paris, only smaller, of course.
In the summer, your are confortably settled under 4 rows of planetrees. In the winter, you can still sit outside because the terraces are heated with outside infrared heaters.
For guys(!) : Aix has been elected the sexiest french town a few years ago. Sitting and looking from one of these cafés is certainly a nice place to enjoy the sight of beautiful ladies !!!!! ;-))

Aix is old

by rickyvilla81

As you see from my badly scanned old postcard of Aix, the place has not really changed all that much even today. So you see, to visit Aix is to see an almost perfectly preserved old town in the heart of Provence, and if that doesn't attract you, well, I'm off mate, I retire. Do one.

St.Victoire again

by rickyvilla81

Hiking around and up St.Victoire:
For those of you who wish to hike up St.Victoire to the peak, there is no bad time of year for it. I went on a sunny day in January, and stripped to my t-shirt. However, as you may be aware, bad winds can attack you at any time of year, so it might not be a good time to be hanging off the edge when it's windy. And it tends to rain a lot in the spring, but check the weather forecast. To hike to the top, take the bus to Vauvenatgues, and get off one stop before the end. It takes about two hours to walk up the steep hill, and then you reach a monks retreat, where you can stay the night.
But you might not want to trek to the top! So maybe it would be an idea to hire a bike from the tourist office and go around that way. Or get the bus to Le tholonet and walk around the base of the mountain. The meadows are beautiful in sunny weather, and there is a large dam and a lake that is a great place for photos.
I never went that way myself...friends told me of it... Hiking boots, water, sunglasses, a camera, and a phone?

Japanese restaurant.

by skydivefred about Yoji

This restaurant remains a reference for the numerous Japanese tourists in Aix. I have never been to Japan but I guess the effort is made to match real Japanese food. The cooks and maids are Japanese. A very friendly atmosphere. The food is very refined.

Have a look on the famous water springs

by vinc_bilb

Since Antiquity, Aix en Provence is famous for its hot and cold curative water springs. The abundant waters are an exception in Provence.

- On the Cours Mirabeau:
o the Nine Cannons fountain (from 1651). Taken over by vegetation, it is difficult to make out the designs that decorate it.
o the Hot Water fountain, called "mossy" (1667 and transformed in 1734). It is fed by the thermal spring of the Bagniers.

- On the Albertas Square, a fountain with a cast iron basin built by the students of the School of Arts and Crafts Occupations of Aix.
- The Four Dolphins Fountain, o, in the Mazarin quarter (1667)

Many other fountains are here to be discovered, with a lot of charm.
