Walk through cours Mirabeau and enjoy a café in surrounding terraces, then make a circle in old streets around and come back towards office du tourisme

“Aix - a jewel in the Provence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Aix is the abolute top spot for French people to visit - and french know what is savoir vivre! So enjoy this city full of culture, historic buildings and a lot of nice shopping opportunities. Thanks to the strictly regulated car access there is almost no cars downtown. Enjoy Aix wile having a coffee and Crepe in one of the countless Brasseries or Coffees. Absolutely Top!

“Perfect French atmosphere without the hustle of Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Old Aix is all about small coffee shops, bakeries, bars, shopping stores... All set in a charming french village. You can easily spend the whole day strolling around, enjoying the old architecture and the small fountains which are a feature of this city...
There always seems to be a market goung on, either for farmers, or wine or lavender or even careers booths... Its a very lively place with something for everyone. The mood of this city goes along with the friendliness of its people, relaxed, friendly and very welcoming

“Everything you want Paris to be.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The old town in Aix is full of small independent shops, little cafes, a wide variety of restaurants and quaint squares with bottles of rosé cooling in the fountains. A great place to shop in the morning, linger over lunch, stroll around and then stop for some lavender ice cream.

“a shopping paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We have never ever seen so many independent little stores, along with the chains. Go there before X-Mas and you'll get an idea what shopping is! Good places to drink an apéritif, good small places to eat, nice, friendly people, and lots of students which makes is young and buzzing. Always things to discoer!
