Aix en Provence France
You're going to find that the city of Aix-en-Provence in the south of France is one of the most delightful places you could ever visit as you’re about to discover out in this detailed movie.
We bring you on a detgailed walking tour of the large pedestrian zone with its charming historic buildings, many shops, cafés, restaurants and the very famous outdoor markets selling fresh produce, clothing, antiques and all kinds of stuff with lots of local characters to observe and interact with. This small city is the perfect size, big enough to keep you busy for several days and yet not too large that you're going to feel lost or frustrated that you can't see everything.
Aix is located in the heart of Provence, a region that has so many wonderful destinations from Avignon to Nice. And you will see that AIX is one place that you must not miss.
You could easily spend a few days here and travel out to visit other nearby destinations, or if you only have one day, it is certainly possible to see most of AIX as we’re going to show you in the movie.
The Gem of the South of France: Aix-en-Provence
Aix-en-Provence is one of the oldest cities in the South of France, and is an absolute treasure. Sun shines in this city over 300 days on average per year, making it the perfect French getaway! I studied abroad in Aix for a cumulative total of around 6 months, and keep on coming back at every opportunity I get.

Things to do in Aix-en-Provence: 3 minute guide to the top attractions
Visitor Vids tourist guide to Aix-en-Provence, France. Make the most of your day out with our, two minute guide to the top visitor attractions in Aix-en-Provence.
Aix en Provence, is a vibrant university city in the south of France, about 30 kms from Marseille and the coast.
The elegant and grandiose Cours Mirabeau, is at the heart of the city. Lined with magnificent plane trees and edged with classical town-houses, the vast thoroughfare spans from the impressive Rotonde fountain past café terraces and fountains to the statue of Good King René. It was he who made Aix his 15th-century Provençal capital.
Aix, was founded in the first century BCE by the Roman consul Sextius Calvinus, who gave his name to its springs. Over the years it has been a cultured centre for artists, lawyers and nobles and Aix is the birthplace of the post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne. The artist's last studio has been left as if he had just popped out. Visit and you’ll see his painting and still-life props still in place. Spy the white, granite stone mountain of Sainte Victoire overlooking the city which was a frequent topic of his work.
Stroll through the Mazarin district, to the south of the Cours Mirabeau with its fine 17th and 18th century aristocratic houses. Here you’ll find the Granet museum Aix's main gallery, as well as the Caumont art centre, both worth a visit. As on the outskirts of the city, is the modernist art museum, the Fondation Vasereley.
Wander to the north of the Cours Mirabeau through the old centre with its elegant narrow streets, grand squares and fountains. Head to the town hall square, with its 16th-century clock tower past ornate Renaissance town-houses to the Archbishop's Palace, and just beyond, St Sauveur cathedral. Here you’ll find Nicolas Froment's 15th-century Burning Bush triptych, one of the French south's finest art-works.
Fashionable shops, restaurants, cafes and bars abound in the city, which is a lively meeting centre and justly named the city of a thousand fountains.

Aix en Provence walking tour
Aix-en-Provence is a joy to discover. You'll most likely begin your explorations of Aix on the main street, which is also the first street you'll come to, Cours Mirabeau, the broad street established in 1651. Simply called the Cours, it is sometimes considered the most attractive boulevard in all France: lined with shops, outdoor cafés and restaurants in all price ranges along a wide sidewalk with magnificent plane trees towering overhead and three moss-covered fountains in the middle of the street.
The three beautiful fountains along the quarter are called, first of all the fountain of the nine canons, and then the so-called mossy fountain from which flows a warm thermal water that generates a thick foam that covers the fountain with the green moss. And at the top of the boulevard there's the fountain of King René designed in 1819, and it adorns a work of the artist David Angers.
It was the French back in the 19th century who perfected the art of walking for sheer pleasure. They called it the flaneur, the aimless wanderer where you're just walking along, alert to your surroundings, observing things, interesting, even unimportant details, not so much worried about your destination, but enjoying the journey. 13A: This art of walking, or flaneur, was very well described by a 19th century French writer named Victor Fournel, who asks us: have you reflected on everything contained in the term flaneur, this most enchanting word which is revered by the poets? Go on infinite investigations through the streets and promenades, drift along with your nose in the wind with both hands in your pocket, with an umbrella under your arm, and an open-minded spirit. Walk along with serendipity without pondering where, and without hurrying. Stop in front of stores to regard their images, at street corners to read their signs, by the book stands to touch and smell. Give yourself over captivated and enraptured with all your senses and all your mind to the spectacle. The 19th century Parisians elevated walking to a fine art.
We show you these streets in the historic center of Aix: Avenue Victor Hugo, Cathédrale Saint Sauveu, Cours Mirabeau, Place de l'Hôtel de ville, Place de Verdun, Place des Tanneurs, Place des Trois Ormeaux, Place Forum des Cardeurs, Place Ramus, Place Saint-Honoré, Rue Aumône Vieille, Rue Bédarrides, Rue Boulegon, Rue Brueys, Rue Chabrier, Rue Clemenceau, Rue Courteissade, Rue de l'Ancienne Madeleine, Rue de la Couronne, Rue de la Masse, Rue des Chapeliers, Rue des Cordeliers, Rue des Tanneurs, Rue Espariat, Rue Fabrot, Rue Gaston de Saporta, Rue Granet, Rue Matheron, Rue Nazareth, Rue Papassaudi, Rue Paul Bert, Rue Vauvenargues,

5 Best Places to Visit in the Provence
The Provence is a vast region in Southern France that is bordered by the river Rhone and the Languedoc region to the west and Italy to the east. Provence is many things. It’s fields of lavender just waiting to be mad into perfume and sachets. It’s picturesque villages that are some of the prettiest France has to offer. Provence also is old Roman ruins and medieval monuments. And, last but not least, it’s gorgeous scenery from the Mediterranean to the Luberon.
