Largely a pedestrian area of Aix en Provence, this maze-like section offers shops, boutique hotels, cafes, churches, historical sites, wonderful architecture and some superb markets in lovely squares and all within easy walking. There's something for almost everyone. You can spend a fortune on a world-class meal or just a few Euros for something tasty. You can enjoy a break... More

A great ambience.Cathedral worth looking at. Can follow a marked trail to see Places associated with Gaugin. Best to find an eatery away from the main squares - There are plenty!

Aix is a great little town with winding streets and freindly people. We were only here on tour froma cruise ship for 1/2 a day but can't wait to go back. If you are there on a Saturday the farmers market is great. One section all flowers and the other all local fruits and vegetables. The displays were just vibrant... More

A friend of ours recommended to visit Aix and the city totally met our expectations and even more. We stayed only for 4-5 hours, but we will definitely revisit (maybe 2-3 days will be more appropriate). Very lively, beautiful streets and people, nice small shops and a variety of cafes and restaurants. If you are in southern France, this is... More

Lovely compact city centre with lots of relatively (for France) inexpensive restaurants, mainly with an Italian bias. Charming old town and easy access to the rest of Provence for exploration. An ideal base in the region.

Aix is a lovely town with winding alleyways in the old part and a wide selection of shops and eateries. It was home to Cezanne which is why I was there and an early morning walk on the Cezanne trail was excellent. Before the town woke up empty streets but you could smell coffee and bread on the quiet streets... More

We loved our visit to Aix and even towards the end of our week were discovering new corners and squares. It was quite lively as the Festival was on and there were many nationalities around but we always found a seat in a restaurant or bar with no problem and ate very well. The petit train and the guided walk... More

The city is beautiful, clean and we loved the Ganet museum. Well worth seeing. We enjoyed the food and wine in one of the local restaurants. The choice of restaurants is wide and the atmosphere is festive and welcoming.

The city is more clean than five years ago but the dogs are still there and we can see the résultat on your shoes ( very bad point). Many students are leaving in Aix apparently and the atmosphere is enjoyed. Difficulties to get a taxi and the drivers are not kind but the weather is fabulous, very temperature and always... More
