Planning a Two Centre Trip to Marseille and Nice in France

I’m off on a twin city trip to Marseille and Nice in France in April.


The return flights, outward with Ryanair from Edinburgh to Marseille and returning from Nice to Edinburgh with easyJet cost £95.

The Journey from Marseille to Nice will cost around £25 per person in second class and take around two and a half hours.

Getting Online

Although both hotels offer free WiFi, I find that I can never depend on getting a decent signal. Fortunately, Three’s ‘Feel at Home’ scheme covers France, so I’ll be able to use my  UK phone contract, with no additional costs.

Even if you don’t have a contract with Three Mobile, you can purchase a Three Mobile ‘All in One’ Add-on for £15, which will give you 25GB of data for overseas use on your phone in countries included in ‘Feel at Home’ scheme.
