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

What a charming city, full of alley ways that are full of shops, restaurants and bars to enjoy. Had lunch at an outdoor café and then spent the afternoon browsing through the streets, enjoying the shops and Gelato!! The best advice I can leave is to visit the restroom at the restaurant you dine in, because there are not many... More

One of the reason we are near to Aix is very simple, it just stimulates every sense possible including the wonderful music festivals throughout the year, which takes place all over this very beautiful city and further out into the beautiful Bouches-du-Rhône villages! Always lots to see and do for any age group! No wonder that Cezanne loved this place... More

This is an old town that is still very much lived in. Lots of people strolling though. Lots of shops. Lots of local cars and scooters but most of the streets are pedestrian only. Find your way from square to square and notice which of the old buildings is where. They are the landmarks that help you find your way!

This is a best part of the Aix. The old town is full of interesting restaurants, bars and shops. It really comes alive at night after 9pm when most people have dinner during summer. The town consists of narrow laneways which open on to squares. Don't miss the markets - we went on a Saturday. The produce is superb!

Aix-en-Provence is a beautiful, charming city, ideally located for visiting the rest of Provence. That means it is crowded with tourists and not cheap. But it is worth visiting for its leisure atmosphere, good restaurants, cobbled streets perfect for strolling around, excellent museums and galleries... Actually it is my first choice for staying in Provence and here I am never... More

From the Cours Mirabeau to the narrow side streets, the old city is replete with fascinating sites. Le Petit Train is a delightful way to see the city, hear a bit of its history, and get your bearings. Take the time to wander beyond the busy tourist spots.
