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.

    Noisy, agitated. Although the Tuesday market day where you will find some excellent local producers. An amazing spices stand! Nice walkway of course but really too much place for tourists, in particular, the evening market with stands that will be identical to Avignon, Nîmes, Marseille, the Isle on the Sorgue river but apparently tourists like... All the same: a small producer of excellent calissons. And all the restaurants which map indicates they are tourist trap. In short, will rather lose yourself in the small streets of the old Aix.

    Main course with a large number of people out and about. On Thursday they make markets with many things. certainly very interesting for the fairer sex who loves to shop. Husbands Minister and being on vacation are less stressed and more condescending

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.
