Due to many 1000 students and tourists very lively atmosphere. Ideal for strolling around, savour the mediterranean feeling, shopping in the many small shops in the old town. Of course cultute (opera festival)

Vieil Aix is a lovely place to spend the day walking and browsing. Naturally it can be a bit touristy and shops can be pricey but in my experience you can expect that in an area like this. Walk around, browse in the shops, look at some of the historic sites and definitely sit outside at a cafe for a... More

Wonderful mixture of shops that are chain names and individual proprietors. Soooo much glacé and gelato! Very safe to let teens walk around alone- venders very helpful and welcoming! We stayed here in an Airbnb - great safe spot if you enjoy walking and eating and shopping.

A beautiful place to wander. Don't miss the Boulanger Paul for the best patisseries. Mitch is a great little restaurant. The daily market is amazing,

Aix-en-Provence was one of the few disappointments during our weeklong vacation in Provence and the Côte D'Azur. We were there on a beautifully Saturday morning in early July and the outdoor markets were open. But there was nothing worth buying.....it wasn't much different than the farmers market I'm New York's Union Square (and with much less interesting people watching). The... More

Nice Old City but a Little crowdy. There are lots of markets here. Aix is kind of expensive though. A beer here costs ca. 6€.

Normally the "vielle ville" are attractive but rather blend into one another. Aix escapes that due I think to the scale of the buildings. A very attractive place to wander round. It's useful to get a guide of some sort (we used the Michelin Green Guide) to point out buildings and places of interest or historical importance. We'd happily go... More
