“Very lively and pleasant”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

The perfect stroll at any time of day. The heart of Vieil Aix. Flanked with cafes, restaurants from one side, and daily markets on the other; it promises constant leisure for tourists. The people watcher most wanted spot.

“It is nice however, I was expecting more”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

I have seen pictures and read about Aix and talked know people in France that vacation there and had high expectations.

After our day in Aix we feel we saw enough. It did not feel like a place we would come back to vacation in. It was very nice and the pastries were good but it seemed a little dirty and run down in places.

The main street is interesting to see and experience. We walked around and went to a open market and bought some fresh fruit and lavender honey which is really good.

Perhaps if you expectations are lower than mine you may really like it.

“Impressive for strolling”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is the main avenue/boulevard in a lovely city and it's worth a good stroll with lots of shops and restaurants plus several fountains. You can cover the entire kilometre-long distance in minutes or a couple of hours. It's also used several times a week for markets, most stalls showcasing clothes and jewelry. It's used by locals and also by countless tourists. The most interesting way to use Cours Mirabeau is as a starting point before going into the maze-like alleyways that lead off it. That's where the best shops and restaurants are to be found.

“Busy and fun to watch”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Perfect for people watchers. Great market and nice restaurants. There is a real buzz well into the night but it never seems to get over loud or raucous.
