What day-trips to take when staying in Aix-en-Provence?

Hi!

I'm going to Aix-en-Provence at the end of October and will be staying there for 5 days. I was wondering if there are any nearby towns or attractions I should visit? I won't have a car so I will be relying on public transportation to get around.

Thanks in advance!

You can go by train to both Avignon and Arles, each of which is good for an entire day. You could also go by train to Marseille, this year's European Capital of Culture.

Provence is a little like California in that it's a lot easier with a car. If you were to rent one, even for a day, I'd say don't miss the Luberon area - Lourmarin, Menerbes, La Coste or Bonnieux, but it you absolutely won't have one then the easiest place to get to is Marseille. There is a bus every 15 minutes from the "bus terminal" area or trains from the train station. Arles and Avignon are good, too, and have trains.

Cassis is a great seaside town accessible from Aix by public transport.

ag, your question is now buried in an old post. I suggest you start your own topic. I cannot help you with public transport but would guess the cruise is about an hour or so. With lunch, you will be done in Cassis in three hours.
