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.

Nice restaurants and shops. "Monoprix" is a good place to buy a gift and has a nice grocery store downstairs if needed. Be sure to explore the small cobble stone streets north of the Cours Mirabeau and east of the fountain (fountain de la Rotonde) where there are many more pub/restaurant/shop choices. One of my personal favorites is the Moroccan... More

This is a wonderful place for a walk. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Banks on one side of the street with ATMs. We love Aix for its outdoor markets. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the markets are on the Cours Mirabeau...at least the non fruit and vegetable items. Lovely fountains. Restaurants visited by famous artists in the past if you... More

What a great place to stroll! There are lots of restaurants with outdoor spaces where you can sit and people watch. We went to the market nearby, picked up some things for lunch and sat on one of the many benches to eat. Make sure you visit the patisserie, Bechard- their products and service is exceptional. Lots of lovely shops.... More

Very charmy central street, with lots of restaurants, most of them expensive, nice and fashioned stores. The fountains in the middle are magnificent and shows how the water has been important to the city since the Roman Era.

Great stalls with merchants selling everything from clothes and shoes to linens and other items from provencale. Follow the market to the end of cours Mirabeau to the left and continue on to the food market (but do this in the morning as everything gets packed up by 1PM).

We have visited this interesting an vibrant city on many occasions. The Cours Mirabeau separates old Aix en Provence for the modern Aix en Provence. If you love life, people watching and fabulous ancient buildings, this is the place for you. Cafe and restaurant life abounds here and you'll be spoilt for choice. One can catch a bus to Marseille...
