What are must sees in southern France? Marselle?

After finishing a bike tour of Provance, I have 2 weeks to explore the rest of France.
I will have started in Paris then start the 7 day bike tour in Avignon.This all happens in May 2009
Is Marselle worth seeing or Monaco/Nice? how is transportatin? I was thinking of getting a France train pass?

Click Railpasses (above) to see how the train pass works and whether it's worth it to you.Every traveler has their own opinions about itinerary, Rick gives his in his books. One way to look at it: Marseilles is worth a day, some people don't give it an overnight but some do. The area called Provence is worth several days at least, unless your bike tour covers it. Nice is worth a couple of days to many people, Monaco is worth a day-trip from Nice. Rail connects all these areas except the parts of Provence not on the rail lines (Nimes, Avignon, Arles, and Aix are on the rail lines).
