I'm visiting Marseille for six days in September and I'm hoping to see some other parts of France whilst in the area. One of the hotels we're considering is near the airport.
We'd really like to visit Lyon and understand we can go by TGV which will take less than 2 hours. Is this correct and does the TGV leave from the airport station or would I need to connect in the city ?
Another trip we'd like to make is to see the Pont du Gard. From the information I've been able to find, it seems the easiest way by public transport is by taking a bus from Avignon. We only plan to spend half a day there so would it be feasible to take the train to Avignon, spend a bit of time there and then bus to Pont du Gard. Again, would we need to take the train from the city centre ? Any pointers regarding public transport would be useful as most of the sites I've looked at are only in French. I've tried my best but haven't been able to clarify exactly what we need to know !!
