Cezanne and more.... Aix (literally pronounced X in english) was our last stop in beautiful-mythic Provence, as part of our long time cherished Gastrotour of France. We just left behind Champagne, Alsace, Burgundy, Rhône and the Heart of Provence which included Les Luberon and Les Alpilles areas. We had great time either touristing or tasting wines and enjoying our foodies... More

Aix old town area is lovely .. classic winding streets and shops that are easy to get lost in. Boutiques are extraordinary ... as are the small cafe's. (I bought a beautiful coat that you can NEVER find in the US, at a great price.) I was touched by a plaque commemorating the US soldiers, who with the assistance of... More

I really enjoyed walking around the city, with the narrow streets, the colours of the walls, the cats walking around, flowers blooming, mid afternoon sky. Aix is really a charming place to visit!

Took a walking tour of the city... well worth the time. This was one of the sites, great story behind the clock. Nice square that it looks over.

A good days outing - this ancient town is walkable, full of interesting shops, museums , cafes and restaurants. The cathedral is untouched over the ages and truly gives an impression of life here in the Middle Ages. Nearly always warm and sunny, a lovely town to explore and learn. It even has a Michelin starred restaurant!
