Somewhere close

We are traveling by car and don't want to drive into Marseille. Can you please suggest a town somewhere close to stay and what sought of transport we could use to get into Marseille. There are four of us.

It is really easy to drive into Marseille - just follow signs to the Old Port and park in the Hotel de Ville underground car park and you are there.

Or park at the airport and take the bus shuttle in or take a train from any of the larger towns eg Avignon or Aix.

You could stay along the Blue Coast train line between Marseille and Miramas at somewhere like Niolon or Carry le Rouet and go in and out by train. That train only runs until around 8.30 in the evening, however, so you wouldn't be able to have a night out in MRS. More about the Blue Coast train line: http://bit.ly/cm9BP0

But there is plenty of parking space in Marseille itself, either at the Hotel de Ville car-park or the one, equally central, at Cours Estienne d'Orves.
