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

Arts and paintings from Cezanne. All of... More

The huge clock, what looked like a busy town square in the morning, and the lovely people milling about...this place was eye candy from every way that I turned. I loved it.

Those streets are still in my hearth. I really loved walking there, visiting shops and bars. People are nice: here you can really appreciate the spirit of Provence.

It is exactly like you read about. Old, narrow, chaotic, a point of interest and a fountain at every corner. Full of shops, life , characters and students. You do feel that this is a place that you could live in and enjoy. Wonderful experience
