marseille to st tropez
hi has anybody any idea how best to get to st tropez we would like to go as cheaply as possible on other forums it say about going to st rafael than bus to st tropez what do you think. thanks in advance
Re: marseille to st tropez
St. Tropez is not really about doing anything inexpensively. There is no train service and the least expensive option is traveling by bus.
depart - St Raphaël Parking Kennedy for the 1 to 1½ hour trip to St. Tropez.

Travel Tips for Marseille
Old Port fishmarkets
the taste of Marseille is the taste of the sea, and bouillebaisse is the dish. This consists of fish, and is more of a casserole than a soup. You can of course make your own with authentic Marseillaise fresh fish, bought from one of many market stands that dot the Old Port in the mornings.
This is my friend Carol not wanting to be anywhere near the smelly fish!!
The Abbaye Saint-Victor (Saint Victor Abbey) is a fortress-like that once belonged to an abbey founded in the 5th century and was built between the 11th and 14th century.
Where: 3, Rue De l'Abbaye 13007 Marseille

"César" is a little ferry boat that crosses the Vieux Port. The boat ride only takes 3 - 4 minutes and is both fun and convenient! The old ferry has first started to operate in 1880, but has been renovated in 2006.
You can catch this ferry right across the street from the city hall at the Old Port.
Ferry services run all day until 7 p.m. In 2007 a single ticket cost 50 cent, a return ticket 80 cent (and the "captain" is also the cashier!!!)
You must go around Marseille...
You must go around Marseille to see : La Ciotat and the 'Calanque of Figuerolles' or Cassis.
The 'Calanques' are specific to south east of france. It's a little beach between huge rocks and you must walk for a while to find it.
Le Panier: walk the red line!
There is a proposed two hour walk through the Panier, the old part of Marseille. It starts next to the City Hall and if you keep following the red line it will take you to various places. There are little information poles (in French and English) and it is really quite interesting! You will pass by squares, the old Charité, a 17th century hospice for the poor, the Cathedral and many other sights.
Sometimes it is a little difficult to find your way through the quarter, but since this is a walk that is introduced and printed on the tourist map as well, you can find your way anyway!
