Cours Mirabeau, Aix-en-Provence

Neighborhood Landmark
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.

  • Must visit this area of town when in Aix. Why? Typical French style markets, beautiful picturesque area with great cafes. Great place for people watching.  more »
  • That would be Aix without his wonderful course? On both of the course lies alleys that hide small wonders (architecture, shops, bars...) In Aix it is ' has for everyone and everything tastes, let you wear

  • Walking over Cours Mirabeau is a must. Every evening there is a market and the atmosphere is great. Many restaurants. Les Deux Garcons is a must!  more »

Where to stay in Aix-en-Provence

To explore the old town's shops, markets, and bookstores on foot, stay at one of the city's centrally located hotels. Just a short drive from this busy central area are a selection of luxurious villas, surrounded by formal gardens and private swimming pools. Though rather expensive, these elegant mansions provide a convenient base from which to explore the cultured area surrounding the city. For a cheaper alternative, look for private inns and B&Bs on the edge of town.
