Shut your eyes, think of a French summer scene, shade from those large trees, relaxing cafes etc - well it's Cours Mirabeau...

It's the main pedestrian avenue in town, broad and lined with trees and full of people and life, and if you're in Aix it's definitely a nice walk. There are many smaller side streets up the hill that are also historic and fun, but Cours Mirabeau is like the main artery. Overall though, the shops and restaurants - like the... More

We was in lot of restaurants, coffes and bar. All the streets and the zone around have a strong trade, like parfums, clothes, snow equipments, shoes, and the unbelivable fragrances of Provence. We strongly recommend.

Like most cities, each has its landmark shopping street. In light of all the shops that are located inside the old city, this street offers just a few of the "company type stores". There are several cafes/ bistros, which make for a nice break.

We expected Cours Mirabeau to be a bit special - but it wasn't really. There were lots of sheds selling overpriced Christmas tat on one side of the road and bars and restaurants on the other. The center of the road is paved which confuses many people into thinking it's pedestrianised, but it isn't and can scare the life out... More

The Cours Mirabeau is a major thruway, full of history. Everyday there seemed to be a different street market in progress. Farmers markets, antiques, clothing...it was fun! The Cours is also lined with shops and restaurants. It's easy to spend entire days just people watching. In late October the Christmas light installation was in progress. Looked like it was going...

This tree lined boulevard with generous pedestrian walkways and many hundred years old elegant mansions on one side and cafes and shops on the other, as well as monuments and fountains to break the monotony is great for a leisurely walk when the weather is good. Time would fly if you laze around in one of the street side cafes... More

It's a lovely area; but it's like most other France cities. The fountains are pretty. It's fun to sit at the café and watched all the tourist go by!

What fun to bring to life what M.K. Fisher wrote about in the 1960's. Lively, vibrant boulevard full of cafes, shops and wonderful fountains.

We loved this area with the tree cover and it was a beautiful spot to take photos. The area just has so much history and the trees were just gorgeous.
