Stuff to do With Adults

Avignon is a beautiful city which still has its old wall around the outside. When you visit the bridge (le pont) you can walk along a bit of the wall. I highly suggest the tourist train to take in the beauty of the city.

Stuff to do With Kids

  • Visit the castle (no strollers)
  • Walk around the old port in Marseille (there is a carousel)

Stuff to do With Adults

Marseille is the second largest city in France, so there is plenty to do there. The castle is a boat ride away, which runs regularly and takes about 25 minutes to get to the castle and then about 45 minutes to return to the port. The snack shop on the island was closed the day we went – be prepared!

Stuff to do With Kids

  • Visit the castle (no strollers)
  • Walk around the town (stroller accessible, but hilly)
  • Have ice-cream

Stuff to do With Adults

This is a “medieval” town, which means the streets are small, hilly, and windy. It’s a perfect little town to visit for a day trip with kids.
