If you come from the airport

There are two solutions.

- One can take a taxi (about 1 hour drive for about 80 € or more). This is the most convenient option, but the most expensive one, unless several people travel together.
There is the possibility to order taxis in advance for a negotiated price of 70 €. To get one you should send a mail at with the title ’Book me a taxi’, indicating where you come from, your flight number, with your day and time of arrival.

- One can take the Shuttle Bus to Gare St. Charles (central train station in Marseille) and then take a taxi from there. The Shuttle Bus leaves every 20 minutes (at 10, 30, and 50 minutes after the hour, basically all day round). The bus ticket has to be bought at the counter before boarding the bus (bus stop and counter are in front of Terminal/Hall 4). The bus takes about 25 minutes and costs 8.50 €. The taxi from St. Charles railways station to CIRM-Luminy takes 25-30 minutes and costs about 40 €.

If you come from the railways station

There are two solutions.

- You take a taxi to CIRM-Luminy. It takes 25-30 minutes and costs about 40 €.

- You take the metro directly in the railways station. Go donwstairs, buy a ticket, then take line 2 (red colour) in the direction ’Sainte-Marguerite Dromel’ and get down at ’Castellane’. Go out of the station, cross the boulevard, take the bus 21 to Luminy and get down at the terminus. The ticket costs less than 2 € and you keep the same ticket to take the bus, since the ticket is valid one hour.
