The ancient city streets of Aix are perhaps the most picturesque in Europe. Well worth repeated visits. Sit at a cafe and have a long lunch with wine, then step out into the lovely night scene and have some glace, you will not forget it!

Nice to walk around, we saw the old streets and the market under the rain but it was nice anyway. Finally some French streets without too many cars!! And the Provence style and fountains...

We had visited Aix-en-Provence for only 3 days in 2000 and stayed longer, a whole week, this time because we had such a great time at the Saturday market. This time, we were able to attend the markets on Sat, Tues, and Thurs. My best friend and I were able to buy clothes that we love at good prices...you just... More

busy with shoppers during the daytime, busy with students and entertainment at night. A lively neighborhood!

Aix is my favorite city in France. If you are nearby in Provence, go to the Vieil Aix for at least a day or two.

Each corner presents new fountain, new attraction. You can walk easily all places in the old town. Or use the local eco-bus, tiny electric transportation. There are nice bakeries, restaurants, coffee shops and some of the museum and churches. Be prepared to take many shots with your camera!

Old Town in Aix, is a must see when in Provence. The trees that act like canopies on the narrow cobble stoned streets make for a refreshing change from the Southern France heat. Each street interlinked with the other takes you on a adventure on scences. From the freshly baked french bread, the lavender and fresh fruit stores to the... More

Aix is split by a main road into the 'old' part and newer 'old' part. Old Aix is a lovely confusion of winding side streets, with tall building and open squares. Well worth a slow amble and stop for coffee or drinks. Lots and lots of eateries of every sort.

We spent hours wandering the old town, discovering streets we had not yet seen 5 days into our stay in Aix. A shoppers paradise by day, with diners and bar hoppers spilling out onto the streets at night. Spend some time wandering aimlessly and getting lost in the magic of Vieil Aix
