Aix has many "place" or plazas around the old town. Two situated near each other close to the Hotel de Ville ( city hall) are the home of a farmers market with veggies, fruit, cheese, and meats. The Second just a short block away is the home of a great flower market. We were there for Christmas, and saw the... More

Rent a car, book at least one night and enjoy the smells and ambiance of Aix. Strolling through the narrow streets, buying in the local markets, practicing your french and smelling the lavender are some of the delights of this visit.

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!

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

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!
