Marseille this October or next April?

Advice, please. Have been to Nice several times, but never to Marseille. Want at least two weeks, but am concerned that with the Fiesta des Suds during October, prices and crowds may be overwhelming. Where I live in the US special festivals drive both through the roof. Am wondering if it would be a better plan to wait until next April and will appreciate any suggestions. Merci.

Would be very surprised if that were the case --- the tourist rush is petering out by Oct. If you book a room well ahead, it should be fine,

I would recommend october. Fiesta des Suds sure bring some crowd, but it is mostly a local festival. It can be fun to go, BTW.

2nd reason for electing october 2013 better than April 2014, is because Marseille is European Capital of Culture throughout 2013. Several venues and attractions will be held there in 2013.
