Firstly can we say a big 'thank you' for the excellent information already on this forum - it is really appreciated.
My wife & I are really looking forward to a one week holiday in mid-October flying into Marseille but can't decide whether to stay in the Vieux Port of Marseille, in Cassis or in Aix. We love walking about, seeing the sights, shopping, dining out but in a relaxed, unhurried kind of way. Ideally somewhere where there will be enough people around for there to be some atmosphere but not crowded.
Obviously we are not expecting to be sunbathing but any indicaiton of what the weather is likely to be would at that time of year would be welcome.
Wherever we stay we would like to visit the other places mentioned and also see Avignon. Would we need a car for this or is it do-able by bus and train?
