Travel inspiration in Marseille and Avignon
Marseille, the capital of Provence region
Marseille is the oldest French city and the second most important city in France after Paris. Marseille is located on the southeast coast of France in the Provence region. The city is known for its harbour, sunny climate and beautiful coastline. The natural beauty of Marseille is reflected by its parks and calanques. This explains why Marseille has retained a particular village feel. From the historic Panier district to the Romanesque churches, the city is full of treasures. The famous Notre Dame de la Garde, which overlooks the city from the top of a hill, is not be missed.
Avignon, the city of Popes
Avignon is located in the Provence region, on the left flank of the Rhône River and is home to more than 500,000 people. Avignon can be reached from main cities like Paris (2h40 trip), Lyon (1h trip) or Marseille (30 minutes trip).
Avignon invites you to share its lifestyle and superb heritage. With its bridge, the Palace of the Popes, testimony to its prestigious past as Capital of Christianity in the Middle Ages, Avignon offers grandiose architecture, with several monuments ranked among UNESCO’s World Heritage. Avignon offers numerous possibilities for sightseeing, activities and events. Tourists can also discover plenty of attractive shops, Provençal cooking, local specialities and the Côtes du Rhône wines… The Mont Ventoux, the lavender fields and all the beauty of Provence is on the doorstep of Avignon.
Reviews & ratings Marseille - Avignon
It was fast but there were just too many stops on the way to Marseille. The luggage storage was too small for the number of passengers in the coach, especially with some travellers who have big suitcases.
excellent in all aspects. full 5 *s
I travelled second class on TER from La Brillanne Oraison to Briancon. It was a punctual, efficient service. The second class carriage was sufficient but not luxurious.
Its easy to order the tickets online. And no problem to get on the train at all. 簡單,方便,快捷 Traveller from HKG.
Our train connection from Marseilles to Lyon, with a local train to Avignon then TGV to Lyon was booked in New Zealand on-line, our tickets arrived by post at our home a few days later, the train was on time, and the TGV station in the Lyon airport made our connection to our homeward flight seamless. Fantastic. Our only worry was not speaking French - and the announcements in the train are spoken in rapid French, but other passengers were helpful and research done before our trip was helpful eg what station comes before your destination station
I took my TGV from Paris to Marseilles. At first I am pretty excited about the journey, Once I reach inside the train, and i notice the baggage allocation space were full. So I brought my baggage into the cabin, and got stared by the entire cabin people, like im doing something wrong. Hence,I just leave my bag obstructing the passage way from cabin to cabin. Luckily my bag is all safe. The baggage space really need to be improve So the second trip I bought 1st class which is 100% better than second class. If i ever going to travel on TGV again im going for the first class
From Nice to Marseille is not a TGV !!! It's the slowest train ever ! From Marseille to Avignon was a nice speed and a nice experience
We used RailEurope with my friends in our trip to the South of France, even though we saw that there were much cheapier and practical options for transportation (such as bus who takes and leaves you directly in the city center. No need to take a shuffle after the train which you also need to pay for additionnally) we still found that the prices were moderate. Other than price, everything was great.
The train was comfortable and good to have sufficient racks for travellers to put their suitcases. However, there was at least 35 minutes delay on arrival to my destination, Avignon. My second ride on the train also had the same problem but delay was less serious. A bit frustrated as trains are supposed to be on time as there is no traffic jam that can affect its schedule.
It was my first time to travel by TGV and my experience was more than expected. Right on time, however with a short delay on return (the train was 30 min late), but disregarding this fact it was very convenient and pleasant.
We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.
TGV was great comfy and fast! Recommend first class. Would use raileurope again made the trip much easier having all sorted before we left.
Punctual in departing and arrival time, clear information and instruction at station, on website and in ticket package, however, information in coach is insufficient, especially about name and time to upcoming stations Toilet in coach is unclean
Getting around France by rail is relatively easy, even if you don't speak the language. Just be mindful if you are tagging around with heavy luggage as you have to haul your luggage up and down the stairways. Also, check your confirmed seats to ensure that they are conveniently allocated especially if you are travelling with elderly folks, although most passengers would be graceful to exchange their seats with you. It would be ideal if TGV can extend its line to the airport as it is costly to commute from Lyon Part Dieu to Lyon St Exupery airport.
The only problem is the space of luggage storage. Everyone carried big luggages on board and there was clearly not sufficient space to fit all the luggages. But overall journey was comfy!
