Shopping and coffee

Very pretty old town with loads of unique boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops for resting while shopping. This is the Paris South without the crowd.

What an amazing place. Buildings and architecture very beautiful. You can wander the streets for hours and see and find somewhere different. Markets on several days and many shops. Many many bars and restaurants of all types from fast food to gastronomic. It is a university town (city) so very busy the weekend evenings and a lot of fun.

Quaint old streets with, at least on some days, a wonderful market. The old town is small enough to walk across in 15 minutes and a splendid place for bars, cafes, restaurants in the evening.

We've just returned from a week staying on the outskirts of Aix. Most days were spent wandering around this lovely, interesting, historic city. Walk down any road & you'll find a host of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, fabulous buildings, markets, dreamy squares and artefacts extending back to Roman times. What's not to adore?!

A must visit town when in Provence - why...it is a bit larger but still has all the charm of a village. Lots of great shopping, restaurants, architecture, and fountains. Get lost, get off the Main Street and explore. Great photo opportunities. One of my favourites places in Provence.

Lovely old tower in the old part of the city. One of the buildings worth a visit for photos and shopping at the market in the square next to the tower.

Vigil Aix, Old Aix, is a fun and quaint section of Aix. Cobble stone streets with old, but well preserved, buildings, preserve the feel of the old city. Place Hotel de Ville is a large square surrounded by interesting buildings, a clock tower and restaurants. It has a nice energy. It's fun just walking the area. Fontaine de la Rortonde... More

The city is beautiful and with many beautiful fountains. There are some quite old. It's worth taking a walking tour or just wander around in the old town.

We took the 45 minute mini-train tour of Old Aix to get a good overview of the town to see where we would like to go back to see on foot. There were head phones that you could tune into different languages for the commentary of the sites as you passed them. It was a good introduction to the town.
