train from Aix to Avignon

by caro36

Hello all, would it be possible to go from Aix to Avignon by regular train ? I mean, from both city stations (not from TGV). As when I look at the SNCF site, there only pop up trains from Aix first to Marseille TGV and than to Avignon. But I just want to go from city to city !

Try the French language:

Choose Aix-en-Provence and Avignon 'Centre'.

Journey takes around 2h 20m, but still goes via Marseilles St Charles, where you will need to change. There aren't many trains per day. One-way fare is 23.50 euro.

There is also bus service from Aix to Avignon, which does not take you back into Marseille.

Travel Tips for Aix-en-Provence

Start your tour at the Rotonde

by rickyvilla81

A simple walk around the centre-ville, starting at the Rotonde. This large fountain, encircled by the busy roundabout Charles de Gaulle, was erected in 1860, and is topped by three statues which represent Justice (facing Cours Mirabeau), Agriculture (facing Marseille), and les Beaux Arts (which faces Avignon). From here, you can either walk up the Cours Mirabeau, down Ave Bonaparte towards Cours Sextius, up Rue Espariat, or down Boulevard Roi René towards Parc Jourdain...
Don't forget, you can also find the large and convenient Tourist Office here at the Rotonde.

Follow the Cézanne brick road

by rickyvilla81

At the tourist office at the Rotonde you can obtain a map of Aix with the 'Route de Cézanne' marked up on it. Alternatively, look down, and follow the little brass squares. They lead you in a circle around town, visiting all of the places where the great impressionist painter used to hang out - where he drank, where he got married - except his Atelier, which is just to the north of town (you can walk there though). Each little brass square has a large C on it - you will easily recognise it. And you'll need to look down anyway, to avoid the dogpoo.
Here is one of his masterful images of St.Victoire.

Villages around Aix en Provence

Villages Around Aix
I really like to visit the small villages around Aix like Trets with his old medieval center, Ventabren and Jouques, pretty hill-top villages with picturesque narrow streets and Rognes with his beautifull stones, widely used in Aix en Provence for building and decoration.

New Name: Cafe du Roi Rene

by ForestqueenNYC about Café de Paris

UPDATE 1/29/06

Cafe de Paris no longer exists. It has been taken over by a very upscale and pretty restaurant which is called Cafe du Roi Rene.

ORIGINAL POSTING

Although during the day, I prefer Le Grillon and Les Deux Garcons, at night after dinner this place seemed more festive and cozy. I don't recall that the food was anything special, but to meet a group of friends or your former husband's second ex wife for drinks, it's a great place.

A day trip to Marseilles

by englishchris

Marseilles is easy to get to from Aix.
Busses leave every twenty minutes from the bus station at the bottom end of Avenue des Belges. The trip takes about half an hour and costs around 4E each way.

Although it is just next door, Marseilles is a world away, in that it is a BIG, BUSTLING, SMELLY, SWEATY, MULTI-CULTURAL CITY, which can be a bit of a shock after the genteelness of Aix.

We spent time up in the Cours Juliene area which is a bit of a cross between Brighton and Brixton (UK), and the rest of the time around the harbour.

For a laugh (and because we were lazy) we took the tourist noddy train from the harbour up to the Chuch on the hill for some amazing views.

Its been over 20 years since I was last in Marseilles, and it certainly feels a bit safer now, but it is still hot and hard work.
