An hour or so on the coach to Avignon, we walked through to the Popes palace, this was fantastic, then to Marseille. A drive to the church, then 20 minutes in Marseille. Nice busy place. Not enough time as we needed to be back on board by 3.30pm. We were late, and had to do the walk of shame, but glad we had booked with MSC. I'd recommend taking a snack for the bus ride as no real time to stop for lunch. Avignon was def worth a visit, but would like to have walked on the Pont d' Avignon, there is a visors centre there, but we ran out of time.
Nice gift shops to buy lavender. Will return to Avignon.
