What to do for 9 weeks


I'll be in Marseille from late May till early Aug (work) and have never travel to Europe. So what's on offer, I'm a keen motorbike rider and would love to sample some of Frances roads! Can i hire a motorbike in Marseille even a moped would be great. I do have a hire car but am sharing it with a fellow college. and as i'll be there for a while what do the locals do and where do they go??

I don't anything about riding a motorbike in France, but I came across a website which might be a good starting place http://www.go2rent.fr/index.php

If you're wanting to get out of the city, the Michelin road maps are generally recommended - they give a very clear indication of the type of road, and their website is good for route-finding viamichelin.com/viamichelin/…MaHomePage.htm

Don't know about the locals, but you have a wealth of great places within easy reach for weekend sojourns. Arles, Nimes, Cassis, Avignon, the Luberon, the Camargue, Carcasonne, to name just a few. Get yourself a good guidebook or two to Provence and the Riviera.
