I will be travelling (with my 20 year old daughter and 14 year old son) from Aix back to Nice at the end of our upcoming 10 day trip. We'd love to spend most of the travel day visiting the Ile d'if and ile de frioul.
Would the following work for us:
bus from aix to marseille (i understand this runs more frequently than the train)
store our luggage at the train station (can we safely walk from the bus to the train station during the day?)
get from train station to vieux port (is this a taxi, bus or walk?)
spend most of the day on the islands
get back to train station (what is the best/safest method? taxi?)
retrieve luggage from the train station and take train back to nice
I'd love comments on our proposed day.
