Travel from Marseilles Airport to Avignon

Hi! My fiance and I will be honeymooning in Provence in mid-October, and we will be arriving at the Marseilles airport around 1 p.m. on a Tuesday. We'll be starting our trip in Avignon, staying near the Palais des Papes. What is the easiest way (that won't break the bank) to get from Marseilles to Avignon's city center?

Thanks in advance for your help!

There is a train station at the airport. Trains to Avignon Centre station take 60 to 90 minutes and cost €16.70.

See en.voyages-sncf.com/en looking for trains from Vitrolles to Avignon. Give Antarctic as the "Ticket collection country" to avoid being transferred to RailEurope, which may not list these local trains.

Most of these journeys are on local (TER) trains. There is no point trying to buy TER tickets in advance over the Internet. These trains have no seat reservations (so tickets cannot sell out) and no discounts. Buy at the airport train station.

You'll need a cab to get to your hotel once you get to the train station. It's a pretty long walk and it's only interesting after you get inside of the old city.
