Every city planner should be compelled to visit the Cours Mirabeau. This is what a city street should resemble!

There are so many levels on which to enjoy this street, strolling, eating, drinking, participating in people watching or just appreciating a refined combination of architecture and urban design. I hope they replace the missing Plane trees and I trust they got their pruning right, it looks savage to me.

There are good restaurants, ice cream and shopping places. You can get some calissons too, the traditional french candy.

I was expecting more of Cours Mirabeau - a tree-line allée where you can stroll in peace. Instead, I found a street full of vendors that made it almost impossible to take a nice picture, little local colors, and then the trees seemed kind of small considering the width of the street. This seems to be the place to see... More

I returned to Cours Mirabeau after my first-time in 1996. Back then, the trees actually formed an "Alle" with branches reaching to the center of the street to create a sense of a long tree-lined hallway. As of July '14, the city appears to have trimmed the trees. It's still very pretty, but nit as awe-inspiring.

Stroll down cours buying souvenirs, drinking a rosè, or shopping in the food stalls. Lively and colourful!

Great street for restaurants, people watching and just strolling. By the Vieux city. A great place to eat or just have a drink and watch the world go by.

Find Mono Prix on the Cours Mirabeau, go to the fountain in the middle of the road and walk down the street opposite. 50 yards down on the right hand side you will find The English Book Shop. Read the Papers - Books and enjoy tea, coffee and cakes.

This wonderful tree lined avenue is in the heart of Aix-en-Provence leading off the Place de Congress with its grand fountain. With its grand buildings dating back from the 17th century and many pavement cafes along the road this is a great spot to watch the world go by. A rival to the Champs elysee! On Sundays there is a...
