Avalon Waterways Port-Ste-Louis, FR to Marseille

Recommended Posts

Will be arriving Port-Ste-Louis, France after cruise on Avalon from Lyon next summer.  We will be going to Florence and Rome on our own.  


The on-line port website for Port-Ste-Louis does not have any information on transfers to Marseille or to the airport.   Rome-to-Rio lists taxi ($65-80) to train station ($10-18), or taxi ($160-190) or Uber ($100-150).

I have similar questions - have you learned anything further about transportation options?
We are on an Avalon cruise departing from St-Jean-de-Losne (need to figure out how to get there from Dijon, think it's a 30-minute taxi ride, maybe that's the only option?) and ending in Port-St-Louis, need to make our way from there to Antibes, probably by catching a train in Marseille, so need to get from the dock to the train station in Marseille.  Anyone??

Sorry, I haven't learned anything about transportation options. I did send an email to Avalon thru their website, but did not receive a response.   Avalon used Port-Ste-Louis in 2019 -- so they must have a bus for  transfer to Marseille airport or to the hotel they use in Marseille for some of their northbound cruises  -- the Intercontinental.

I also sent an email to Avalon, no response - somewhat disheartening they are so unresponsive.  Yes, I believe they do offer transfers to the Marseilles airport, but I'm hoping not to have to detour to the airport just to continue our journey to Antibes.  Currently considering either a train (we'd have to get to the nearest train station) or renting a car (similar distance to the nearest rental agency), both of which would entail a taxi or Uber from the dock.  Not sure how readily available they are?
