I am coming in from Avignon to spend a day and night in one of these three places in order to see Les Calanques, then take a train to Paris the next day (in May). I have found hotels/B & B's to stay in all 3 places, so that's not a problem, but what I want to do is go where I can have the best boat trip to see the most calanques. If Marseille is fine for that, I would probably choose that, since it only costs more to take the train to Cassis or La Ciotat. The other question is how to get from my hotel (not chosen yet) to the port for the boat trip, as we won't be renting a car.
There are 3 of us, coming in the later morning, hoping to get the boat tour asap (or check in hotel first), then just have supper, stay the night, and take a 9 or 10 a.m. train to Paris. REALLY want to avoid any nude or topless beaches IF POSSIBLE!! :)
I couldn't find a specific answer to this question in any forum.
Any suggestions as to the best plan??
