Cours Mirabeau, Aix-en-Provence

(4.3/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
A wide, bustling boulevard, Cours Mirabeau stretches 440 m (1,500 ft) long and 42 m (130 ft) wide. It has a number of cafes, some more than 100 years old, which were once visited by Nobel laureate Albert Camus. The street's wide sidewalks are planted with double rows of trees. Cool off at the fountains, the largest of which, La Rotonde, lies at one end of the street. The street divides Aix into two portions, the Quartier Mazarin, or the "new town," which extends to the south and west, and the Ville Comtale, the "old town," which lies to the north. Wander from the boulevard to the old town's wide streets and old French mansions dating from the 16th century.

  • Essential to the centre of Aix this avenue gives access to the pedestrian not, many brasseries and cafes. The architecture of the buildings shows the history of the city of Aachen. We go through here to discover this wonderful city before entering the small aisles once again with beautiful architecture. Often very busy weekend it is not unpleasant to the contrary, the atmosphere is very relaxed.

  • Very nice course enriched by rows of plane trees, which in summer offer a nice atmosphere ... full of shops and bars, which, although they lose some character, enliven the way of life and make the appropriate passage even tourists to shopping ... There are also various fountains very nice to look at.
