A few friends and I are hoping to go from Croatia to southern France. I've been looking around for options, but there are not many good ones..does anyone have any good suggestions (besides flying...the flights seem to be quite expensive between Zagreb and Marseilles) on how we should get from Croatia to Marseilles/Cassis area? Thank you!

2http://www.germanwings.com has flights from Zagreb dp 9.50 to Nice ar 16.55 for about 140 EUR.
The bus Ljubljana dp 5.30am - Marseille ar 24.00 costs about half that price.
You may also check the Zagreb dp 18.25 - Zurich night train and the connecting day trains to Marseille ar 16.18, but this may be the most expensive solution.
As an alternative, you may go via Milan by local bus and slow trains:
Zagreb dp 5.30 - Trieste dp 12.46 - Milano Lambrate dp 20.32 - Ventimiglia ar 1.20am, dp 5.47 - Marseille ar 9.29
It would of course be easier and cheaper to start at Split, as most low cost flights start there.

3I did (almost) this trip in reverse last year - from Nice to Split. I got a train to Ancona in Italy, and then an overnight boat to Split. The overnight boat was really good fun - there was a bar on the deck and a hilarious cheesy nightclub on there. I was on my own and still loved it...If you're not in a rush then it was quite a nice journey. The boat was €30, it was a company called Blueline ferries. I can't remember how much the train was - I have a feeling around €90, but I only bought the tickets the day before, so in advance you could probably get it cheaper. It was Nice-Ventimiglia-Milan-Ancona.

5Ouch. The OP didn't actually specify that the journey had to be from Zagreb, just that the flights were particularly expensive from there. A lot of people travel around Croatia - and as the poster was asking for suggestions of alternatives, and as I had travelled between Southern France and Croatia using means of transport other than flying, I didn't think that my nice story was totally irrelevant. My bad.
