I wondered for some time what separates squares in Aix-en-Provence from numerous Italian piazzas I had a chance to see this year - so I still got the fresh perspective. In both cases you got a lot of cafes, impressive architecture, flocks of tourists (that I try to avoid if I can by travelling low-season, to be honest - but... More

Disembarking from our cruise ship in Marseilles, we had planned to visit Aix En Provence on our own by train, our ticket having already been booked in advance. Unfortunately due to where we were berthed, this necessitated a bus journey to get to Marseilles St Charles station the main terminus for trains into and out of Marseilles. Disembarking as soon...

Our second time to Aix and we returned specifically to go to all of the wonderful markets. Unfortunately, we were there on a Monday and most, if not all, of the markets are closed on Mondays. That being said, there were still a couple of smaller markets that were absolutely wonderful as well as terrific "brick and mortar" shops who... More

We visited Aix with the sole reason on the farmers' market. You will pass this lovely bell tower on the way to the farmers' market.

This was my first visit to Aix-en-Provence but it won't be the last. We loved wandering around the old town with its medieval character, great shopping, loads of street cafes and bars, restaurants everywhere you turned. Thoroughly relaxing and full of life

A walk around Aix on a busy market Saturday isn't without its challenges but the squares and arcades you will discover are worth the walk

Be sure to stay in or near the old part of the city so you can easily walk in and around the "downtown" area to explore the markets, shops and bars. There are lots of places where you can sit outside at cafes to imbibe and people watch, and in just a few days we got to experience a farmers'... More

It's certainly not a misnomer to call this smart, upmarket town the Paris of the south. Stepping out onto the Cour Mirabeau and turning uphill into the old town is a lovely experience, one I never tire of. With its many restaurants and smart shops as well as its wonderful old buildings and narrow, cobbled streets, the old town of... More
