We enjoyed strolling the market on the Cours. Lots of clothes, scarves, shoes....quite the contrast to the high end stores located in this area. We stumbled upon a wine store selling wines from the vineyard that the Jolie-Pitt family are affiliated with .... Miraval. Highly recommend a visit there!

THE place in Aix en Provence to see and be seen. People watching heaven in a tree lined street. Several markets each week. At the big fountain / roundabout end is the Tourist Office and the start point of a 40 odd minute road train tour of the old city. Plenty of bars / cafes on one side to stop... More

You can't miss it. It's the beautiful tree-lined main street that is the heart and soul of the old town. You can still see the Baroque houses (now hotels and shops) that existed in the 17th century. The house at #38 is very Baroque with the atlases holding up the balcony. The architecture on this street is amazing. One can... More

Aix en Provence's most famous boulevard, starting at the Rotonde. It is bordered by trees and nice buildings. It is on the border to the old part of the city. It offers a nice walk for 1 one if you are in the area.

Always lovely to see this beautiful street with its lovely restaurants. Cours Mirabeau is the gateway to the town of Aix-en-Provence, one of our favorite town in France.

We walked along here several times during our visit to Aix. Lots of restaurants and shops. Good place to people watch. A local told me to watch for beautiful doors.

This pedestrian street holds regular markets which are interesting ( the Burgundy cake lady) and good buys. It is lined with restaurants with outdoor seating which are great for people watching . The restaurants are touristy and I would eat elsewhere. A great place for a stroll and has a bit of everything: pharmacy, grocery store in the basement of... More

Cours Mirabeau is a semi pedestrian area with lots of different stands with homemade food or objects. A nice stroll in the middle of Aix. Lots of restaurants (although side streets may be better for more authentique food). Typical things to buy especially around xmas time.

We came by bus from Marseille. We stopped for a coffee on the Cours Mirabeau when we arrived. There are lots of places for coffee or a meal. We just wanted to get our bearings and look at the map, but we stayed for a while and watched the locals, tourists and students go by. When you walk up the... More

We made a stop over at Cours Mirabeau. Park at this coordinates : 43.529101,5.45102. Cours Mirabeau is about 5 mins walk away. Nice cool place for a lunch break and some shopping for the ladies.
