Always nice to enjoy the old town when it is quieter as in summer it is always very busy. Then, you end up watching your feet more than the beautiful old Provencal architecture and histoire.

Could not have enjoyed Aix more. Delightful everywhere, cafes, ma4kets and sights. Don’t miss this old and perfect City. Now the work that on the rotunda is finished it looks fabulous.

I'm in love, especially during Christmas time there is a lot of lights hang on the trees and it looks magical. Hundreds of good restaurants and coffee stores makes this place very enjoyable :)

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

Forget about the markets, ignore the cattle call to shop and eat, instead ... immerse the "self" in the moment. Absorb all that history attempts to communicate. Break loose (even for a bit) from the "tour group" anchor weight and explore! This Old Town is...More

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!

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
