Lovely to wander round all the squares and fountains in the same beautiful honey coloured stone. Very relaxing and not too touristy.

The old part of Aix-en-Provence has been preserved much as it has been for centuries. Wonder through the streets, the church, the mayor's office and walk where Cezanne walked. It is awe inspiring.

Probably the loveliest town I have ever visited and I have visited many! Charming, old, interesting, history on every street. Individual, quirky, sophisticated as only the French can do!

Winding streets, music and dancing on the streets were just a few things the old town had to offer. Beautiful buildings and small fountains set out on small squares contributed to the harmony of the old town as well as giving an Ancient Rome touch....More

Wandering in the narrow lanes, feeling a bit of breeze, stopping in one of the squares for a simple lunch or a coffee, old Aix is always charming and welcoming.

While Cezanne's studio is a huge attraction in Aix, our us the best part of Aix is the shopping. On any given day (except Tuesdays) there's always local street vendors with amazing products. Saturdays are the best days for... More
