A really lovely road, but a tad noisy. We wished it had been fully pedestrianised as the traffic zooms past regardless of pedestrians crossing. Many fountains in Aix, some interesting ones here. Get the map from the tourist office which is very good.

Cours Mirabeau is a beautiful boulevard, not very long, with 4 fountains on the middle. There are cafes on one side and there was a fair on the other side when we went there. It's a very animated street in the evening.

Nice 'avenue' with lots happening. Lots of restaurants, but mainly the gateway to a number of little side streets bursting with shops of every kind. Lovely fountains, so take your water bottle and have a number of refills. Lovely market on a Tuesday, but also a number of other market areas nearby.

Historically, this wide boulevard was the home of the area's wealthy. Now it is a pedestrian street lined with sidewalk cafes, gelato stands, and places to have a glass of wine and enjoy the day. The local wine - we tried the rose, was interesting and worked with the varied lunch choices of our group. There are a number of... More

Alas, this once beautiful avenue has been really spoiled by some poor choices of "improvements". While there are still some nice cafes, the newly added modern sculptures and metal pins added to discourage cars from parking which look like anti- tank devices, detract from the beauty of the street. To get a better sense of the real charm of the... More

This was a really nice street in Aix, the trees had been cut back in recent years so they didn't join to create the arch we see in pictures but still beautiful. There are fountains along the way and at night in particular, when it's all lit up, it comes to a life of its own. Not sure how often... More

From the gorgeous fountain and free Wifi in the area surrounding the Apple Store, to the sidewalk cafes, and crafts fair, this can be a charming part of any day or evening in Aix. The evenings cool off remarkably, making your stroll that much more pleasant

Worth a visit, even if it is (like me) ticking another box of places to go and see. SWMBO'd found the experience a treat. I have to say we did enjoy the air-conditioned cafes even if the were a little on the pricey side. Then, we have the photo's to prove that we were there.
