We have pretty much no sense of direction, but it was impossible to get lost in this lovely old town: the "main drag" (Cours Mirabeau) is an easy orientation point. It helped... read more

After having spent 2 weeks around the Cote D'Azur and it's beautiful hilltop villages, we expected much more of Aix than we found. It was OK, but we'd seen better. Busy, crowded and expensive.

We have pretty much no sense of direction, but it was impossible to get lost in this lovely old town: the "main drag" (Cours Mirabeau) is an easy orientation point. It helped that we got a nice walking tour the first morning, though, because the local guide showed us the hidden history behind the buildings and areas that we were... More

Very easy to park in well signposted and good value car park. City streets were very pretty with a great variety of shops albeit at 'the top end'.

I came here twice just to hang out in the afternoon... There is a band, sort of that plays here everyday (I think). The singer's voice is a bit like Lionel Richie. Very worthwhile to come here and just chill...lots of shops nearby.

Old town centre in Aix, with most of the attractions. You can probably do the main museum/galleries and sights in just over one day, certainly two. Nice mix of restaurants (of all price ranges), smart shopping, old streets and a market on Cours Mirabelle.

Very nice small streets, with very well balanced presence of French persons and tourists. I especially recommend the bakery chain Paul and then a lot of shops selling typical provencal soaps, parfumes and other souvenirs.

Small streets with very old buildings; always a lot of people on the move. Plenty of bars and restaurants to have a drink or just watch the people go by. Always some kind of market going on somewhere.

The market in Aix -en -Provence is one of the most interesting and enjoyable I've seen in France : Antiques, fruit and veggies, local made cheeses and charcuterie, local products, but also clothes. A very varried market. I just love that mix of smells, colours, people.

Aix is a very fine city and its old town is still the heart of the place. Although the centre is full of shops and restaurants - so many restaurants! - you could wander for hours without retracing your steps. The Cours Mirabeau is the one that makes it on to all the postcards etc but wandering the back streets... More
