The little characters and the moon clock are really fascinating. And the surrounding area is really cute and worth the visit to at least look around.

A truly beautiful old City full of beautiful buildings. Statues on almost each corner so that you don't forget the Gods. Lots of lovely shops, restaurants & cafes. Watch out for the Dog Pooh!!!

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
