Cours Mirabeau is the absolute MUST place to visit in Aix. There are many good and interesting places to see and visit in Aix, but Cours Mirabeau, rightly puts everything into perspective. On certain days there is also a large market held down the centre of the Cours and this just adds mischievous fun to it all. Walk all the... More

Anyone who knows the city knows this place. Cours Mirabeau is the main artery of Aix-en-Provence with its beautiful fountains and shops and cafés. I recommend it, even for a little stroll.

Beautiful plane trees shade this lovely avenue that was links the Old Town to the Mazarin district. Once lined by elegant patrician mansions inhabited by the wealthy, the boulevard is now a busy shopping and dining location with a mix of high end designer stores, souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants. Just a wonderful street to stroll and absorb the energy... More

I live in Aix for a year -writing and semi-learning French. this is the center of town and a great starting place for all the smaller (but more vibrant) markets. I always start at the stationary store. No idea why but one has to start somewhere. Spend time in Aix. You will never be the same.

Typical of many French towns and cities. A long wide pedestrian street (road in the middle is for access vehicles and the odd taxi - very little motor traffic) with coffee shops and restaurants on one side along with a few of the well known brand stores and on the other mainly commercial, banks, offices. A few fountains in the... More

Cours Mirabeau the most important street in Aix-en- Provence, a street to enjoy, a street to just sit and watch the world go by. Traffic is restricted and slow, market days twice a week, excellent cafes and shopping. Fountains at regular intervals with a huge one at the beginning. If you are near Aix take time to visit this area.

I can’t put my finger on why, but there is something about the ambience and energy of this charming medieval town that is reminiscent of Vail, Co. I’ve mentioned this to other friends who have also visited here and they agree. Cours Mirabeau is a wide tree-shaded avenue built in the 1600’s and I was thoroughly content to wander down... More

This is the place to stroll and see life in the town, especially at holiday seasons. However, heading off this main drag is really worthwhile for those smaller and very individual places to eat.
