Aix, Arles or Marseille for UEFA Euro '16 base

Jump to last reply

Excited to have tickets to a UEFA Euro 2016 game in Marseille. Folks here aren't too keen on the town compared to others nearby, so would love advice on whether or not we should make another town our base for a few days -- say Aix, Arles or Cassis -- and brave a train ride in and back the night of the game. I say "brave" in anticipation of lots and lots of people. Having been in Geneva for the '08 Euro we know the volume of people to expect (and that was part of the fun!), but we were staying in the city so getting back to the hotel wasn't too onerous.

We would have about four nights to spare in Marseille or nearby. We currently don't plan to have a car, but would consider one if taking day trips is difficult by train.

We will be coming from a few days in Nice for a game there, and headed to St. Etienne/Lyon following Marseille.

We've previously spent time in Avignon and Nice and prefer to see new towns, but are open to suggestions.

The advice we've received on these forums has been invaluable over the years! I appreciate any additional input.
