Aix, Marseille, Cassis - worth it, and if so how?

Jump to last reply

I have one extra day in my 5 week France, Italy, Switzerland trip next July. My first thought was to drive from Aix to Vence in one day, stopping in Cassis for a few hours. But it will be a Sunday in July and I'm concerned that parking will be a nightmare. But now that I've finished my whole itinerary I have one day extra - I could just tack it on to the other places I'm going after Provence (3 nights Vence, 5 Italian Riviera, 6 Switzerland, 3 Strasbourg) or I could try to do Marseille.

I will have a car at this point in the trip and I do NOT want to drive in Marseille so it seems my options are: A) extra night in Aix and take the train to Marseille for a few hours, and if so inclined then train to Cassis, but go back to Aix that night (and leave the car there). B) Book a hotel in Cassis for the night and take the train to Marseille for either Sunday afternoon, or Monday morning before moving on to Vence. or C) skip Marseille completely, just try to stop in Cassis en route to Vence.

I gather parking in Cassis will be very tough (the hotels I looked at all say 'parking available nearby' which obviously means they don't have it.

Thoughts? What would you do?
