The old city of Aix en Provence has a few steep streets if you walk up from La Rotonde.
My greatest find to overcome this was the Diabline. A small cab with the driver in front and a small six-seater cabin behind him. They have...More
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!

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 the local markets and the size/variety of the items sold is going to be dependent upon what day of the week you visit and what time of the year you are there. Soaps, herbs, flowers, olive oils are just some of the items that are sold in abundance. Make sure to have plenty of cash because all of these transactions are done in it (no credit cards)...but the prices/quality is significantly better than what you'd find in other markets.
