Cours Mirabeau, Aix-en-Provence

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.

  • The cours Mirabeau is a place nice and full of history but the shops are run as far too expensive and quality mediocre.preferez the small streets surrounding the cancellations are interesting, but it is better to drink and eat in the streets around

  • Very nice avenue, the principal of the city of Aachen. You can walk and you can find many cafés and restaurants. Architecture historical and well maintained.

  • The course is really impressive and observing specific architectures on both sides that distinguish the buildings in the area. There are also many restaurants and interesting listings, which are on the main street were also not exaggerated prices. The fountains there are also centrally located here, primarily consisting of a big rock full of damp Moss and dripping water. To see that is essential for visiting Aix.
