The old town of Aix is a picturesque maze of charming streets lined with elegant 17-19 th century mansions with sculptured doorways and balconies, punctuated with pleasant squares, bubbling fountains and colorful flower baskets. Allow yourself to get lost in the Vieux Aix and absorb the unique character of the old town.

Great to get lost in this beautiful City. So many features; fountains, statues, courtyards, archways & Dog Pooh (be careful where you walk).

I can't believe that anyone would be disappointed with the old town & its offerings. The backstreets are a dream to wander around & provide so many great shopping, dining & drink options. Aix exceeded our expectations & we were so happy to have arranged to stay 3 nights on our whirlwind winter trip of France. The other plus -... More

This is a small charming city with lots of stores and restaurants. Our expectation was that Aix would be the high point in our trip but truth is we found it only interesting.... Maybe my expectations were too high and I dreamt of finding a Provence little village but Aix is a rather big city what broke our spell a... More

Amazing walk through the city - cafes, shops, sweets, churches, municipality center and other public places.... It is a jewel. I loved every little alley, square and even in the midst of summer with thousands of tourists it does not lose its charm. Make it to the monastery and go on a private tour with a guide to discover details... More

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

We walked for two days, and also took the little tourist train in case we missed anything. Such fun.

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!
