The bus leaves from Marseilles train station at very regular intervals and is not at all expensive. I paid a few euros but of course, whatever I paid in 2011 would have increased by now. The bus trip takes probably half an hour to reach Aix. The bus arrival station in Aix is on the Cours Mirabeau and is very handy to the Tourist Info Centre. The walk into the main part of the city is probably about ten minutes depending on how fit you are. (It took me longer than that but I certainly didn't find it taxing on my poor arthritic knees).
There are also very regular trains from Avignon to Aix en Provence

I would recommend you to be a little careful in riding the train between Marseille and Aix. There are regularly scheduled trains, but late at night or early in the morning there a few people other than young party animals who come up from Marseille to party in Aix. the fare is 7.20 euro and it only takes about 30 minutes. This guy (and his friends) did not want a picture of his face, so he had on this interesting sweatshirt/hoodie. I suspect these guys were on a first name basis with the local law enforcement officials.

Hello everyone, I had often heard of Provence,with these picturesque villages: Aix en Provence, Bonnieux, Oppede, Menerbes and still others which I forgot the name . The month of June I went to Provence see fields of lavender and poppy. That was really great and gorgeous I stayed a few days to Bonnieux (la Bastide de Capelongue )and I have also visited the beautiful village of Gordes in Provence (Aix en Provence is 80 kms far )
What is the most difficult that is to go to Bonnieux, I left New York so I have taken the direct flight by Delta Airlines arriving at Nice at 8.30 am and I have found a small private transport company who knew this area; rivera.mercantour.travel @ gmail.com.
I had an appointment at the airport and they took me with my family. It takes about 2.30 hours by car from the highway (235 kms ago, price around 350 euros which is reasonable for four people).to Aix en provence it's the same price.
If I can help you in this journey, write me I will answer you with pleasure

The TGV station is way out of town at Aix - around 10 miles - there are buses between Aix town centre and the TGV station every 15 minutes. Timetable can be found at

The train station in Aix is where you can go to buy your tickets for the TGV to Paris and elsewhere. You do not, however, board the TGV at this station. You must take a shuttle, taxi, or car to the very modern and new station which is a few miles outside of town.
Generally speaking, one who knows Aix does not take the train from there to Marseille or Nice because the bus is so much more convenient, cheaper. To Nice the bus takes about the same time as the TGV since you would have to go to Marseille to take it.
Location: at the end of Avenue Victor Hugo turn right and you are looking at it.

A good way to get around Aix en Provence is to take the local bus.
It's cheap and efficient, at least during day time. Most buses stop
going at 10pm, so make sure that you've planned your trip back!
On sundays, there's almost no bus service at all, keep that in mind.
A tip is also to buy a carnet of 10 tickets in advance, it can be bought
in most "tabac"-stores or at the tourist office, costs about 7 euro.

I never really dare taking the bus abroad because we never know where to take it and where to stop.
Aix en Provence buses are relatively easy to use for one reason: they all have a stop in common, they meet at La Rotonde which is the very centre of Aix. Therefore you can take a bus and if need be stay on it and always come back next to the tourist office. You can't get lost in the middle of nowhere...

The best way to see Provence is just to rent a car, and drive. There are trains, but to do it at your own pace is the best way to explore, and find places that nobody knows about. Autoeurope seems to have pretty good deals on cars, and you can return them in different cities, as long as they're in the same country.

Aix is such a great place to walk around - in fact it's really all you can do to see this town, as the streets tend to be narrow and winding, and steep - but mind the dogspoo of course. You will discover lots of lovely little nooks, but buy a map - it's an easy town to be lost in.
