Great Market

What a fun place to stroll and great deals to be had. A visual feast. Give yourself lots of time because there is plenty to look at if you are a shopper.

Perhaps it was the market closing at lunchtime, but the Cour Mirabeau seemed to have lost its former energy and attraction.

Even if you don't set out heading for here, you will eventually end of being led to it. The tree lined avenue it undeniably pretty, even if some of the cafes and bars along the side leave a little to be desired. Not a place to eat, but definitely worth a stop for a drink and a watch of the... More

I studied in Aix 24 years ago and a lot has changed in this small, quaint city, mostly on the Cours Mirabeau which has morphed into a real destination. Before, the Cours was just a string of cafes on one side (la Vieille Ville), with boring banks on the other (Quartier Mazarine). The cafes were somewhat stodgy and empty. The... More

It is really "Champs-Elysees" of Aix and entire Provence. Huge, wide, chic and nice central boulevard (most pedestrian) with historic restaurants and surrounded by old plane trees. One of those Aux Deux Garcons, frequently visited by Paul Cezanne. Other one - cafe Maison Bechard, oldest and venerated patisserie. And of course, La Rotonde, magnificent and grandiose fontaine in the end... More

After the Turner Exhibition and a less than satisfactory lunch, but a wonderful visit to the Book and Bar, my wife and I spent an hour "chilling" at the Irish Pub on the Cours Mirabeau before travelling back to Marseille by train. It's a great spot to people-watch, music for my generation was playing coincidentally although the bar was full... More

It is an avenue with restricted car traffic and full of people in bars, patisseries and restaurants. You can sit at the sidewalk and just do a gratifying people watching!

A must when visiting Aix, it helps you get your bearings on the map but is also a great place. It's full of restaurants, shops, bars, fountains and market stalls. You could spend hours exploring and watching the world go by.

Cours Mirabeau is one of the most beautiful avenues in France. I have been here 4 times in 42 years and am never disappointed. It's s city that has to be experienced, no words do justice for such a stunning city.
