The heart of Aix defines quintessential old European charm. Lots of boutiques selling local crafts and international brands. Plenty of architectural detail. A nice mix of restaurant options. There is also a nice cathedral and a couple of museums in the area. The city itself...More

Winding streets, music and dancing on the streets were just a few things the old town had to offer. Beautiful buildings and small fountains set out on small squares contributed to the harmony of the old town as well as giving an Ancient Rome touch....More

Wandering in the narrow lanes, feeling a bit of breeze, stopping in one of the squares for a simple lunch or a coffee, old Aix is always charming and welcoming.

The Viell Aix is a small, family friendly musuem aimed at children aged between 6 - 14. The only downside is no loos.

It was my 3rd short visit in Aix-en-Provence, but the town tells stories that make me come back every time we are in the area. It is true that this early summer there are major construction sites that prevent someone just getting acquainted with this...More

Expected a lot. Disappointed a lot. Most of the city is a big working place. Hardly find a parking spot. Difficult to drive. Noisy. I guess I was there on the wrong moment. Not a Nice souvenir

Best to just wander. Admire the magnificent doorways and carvings in the side of buildings. There are quaint narrow streets, elegant street lamps, hidden gems at every turn ... take the time to walk around, get lost and absorb the ambiance.
