Lots of character

A great old town to walk around and find a restaurant. Definitely recommended. Actually this is the main reason to come to this town.

It is just a highway! Indeed there is a beautiful fountain, lots of cafe terraces, but your visit is completely spoiled by such a permanent heavy car-traffic! They should really do something to pedestrianize this thoroughfare.

The fountains are very cute. However, the best morning markets are really in villages less known and less crowded. The treelined place is good for wondering if you can find a way to avoid all the people...

A beautiful wide avenuein the heart of Aix with numerous fountains, including the massive La Rotonde,some very old, and all different. Shaded by trees, it just shouts "France!" Lots of shops and cafes in which to sit and people-watch. Ancient narrow streets to wander and a statue of Cezanne to admire at the bus stop! There is a market stretching... More

It is nothing special, nice, but not more. There are countless better ones in Europe. And completely overpriced! But ok if you are there and nothing better to do, go for it. I prefere different places.

This boulevard has it all. Nice restaurants, fountains, people watching and on market day, anything you want. I bought a ceramic pendant that has already been worm a few times and I'm sure will be one of my favorites for years to come. The usual meat, cheese, olive selections plus crafts and art.

Great place to watch the world go by having a coffee or a glass of wine in the sun in this lovely tree lined street.

We seemed to always end up at the Cours Mirabeau. Great large fountain on one end and a line-up of cafes and two book stores with good selection of books in English. After the narrow cobblestone streets, easy to walk and wander.

I had always read how charming Aix is and about strolling down the Cours Mirabeau. It's just a wide street with a lot of shops, and one beautiful fountain at the end. I would suggest skipping Aix and visiting Arles, Avignon or Nimes instead. The only place of interest was a beautiful pastry and candy shop that sold the famous... More
