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...

This main street is constantly changing! Wander down early for breakfast in the street cafe's, people watch as the different tour groups pass by. Wander off through the old town sections and come back for lunch in another famous restaurant. Another day browse in the street market and buy gifts for everyone back home. Listen to the french music played... More

The main artery of Aix, perfect for strolling along, admiring the facades, enjoying the shade or having a drink or cup of coffee. Not to mention beautiful fountains which are the trademark of Aix. Parking is easy due to a number of cheap garages all around and from here you can walk to every interesting place in the town in... More

If you are missing your shopping fix, or you have some time to kill, it is worth stopping by. Finding parking close by was a bit of a challenge. If you park in one of the garages around the area, validate your ticket on the upper level before you get in your car. You cannot pay at the gate arm... More
