“Wonderful atmosphere, be sure to walk from top to bottom.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

From the largest, la Rotonde, at one end to the fountain sporting a statue of "good King Rene" at the other, this plane tree-lined boulevard has a variety of shops and restaurants on one side and mostly stately and massive buildings (former townhouses of aristocrats) housing administrative offices and such on the other. My favorite stops are Monoprix for sundries, a couple of bookstores and the best stationary store in southern France. Be sure to take time in one of the sidewalk brasseries to have un café or Pastis to watch the crowd roll by.

“Ok for a walk”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The street is nice for a walk, mainly at night when the fountains are all lighten up. But if you want to feel the real atmosphere of Aix, you should go instead in all the narrow pedestrian streets of the Old Aix, with all the outdoor terrasse, the cafes. Discover the many little squares where all the action is.

“Lively and atmospheric”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

A lot of restaurants and bars to choose from - great for 'people watching' restaurants a little over priced but that's what you have to pay for a ring-side seat
