Arrival and departure

  • Arrival : saturday at 4pm

How to arrive:

The best is to take the bus shuttle from either Marseille airport or  Aix TGV station.  It costs about 8 euros from Marseille and 5 euros from Aix TGV and you can pay directly in the shuttle with cash or credit card. The shutte will bring you directly to Aix gare routiere which is in the center of the city.  From there you can take a taxi which will cost 5 to 10 euros to my appartment.

Other questions

  • Do I need a car? Probably not as we are in the middle of the city and we can walk everywhere. Also Aix-en- Provence is an ancient city and parking is limited.
  • Is it a very big town? No, we can tour the city by walking
  • Is there a lift in the building? No because the building was built in the 18 th century. It is recommended to avoid very big suitcases.
  • What is the weather like in Aix? There are 4 seasons in Aix. In summer it is hot, around 27 to 30 degrees Celsius, around 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. In winter it could rain and the average temperature is around 4 to 10 degrees Celsius, or 35 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring is a lovely season, flowers are in bloom and the weather is really nice, around 20 to 25 degrees Celsius, or 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Autumn is very nice too, temperatures are similar to those in spring, but it can rain a little. We do not have snow usually in Aix, but it can happen one day or two in the middle of winter. For Opera aficionados, June is the high season for the lyric festival in Aix. Tickets need to be purchased in advance.
  •  What is the optimal length of stay? You can stay as long as you want but a stay of 2 weeks is usually very beneficial.
