Aix is a laid back town where leafy boulevards and public squares are lined with 17th- and 18th-century mansions, boulevards of Cours Mirabeau laced with cafes, narrow lanes with designer boutiques and fountains that ornament the streets of this Provence.
Take a lazy stroll down the narrow streets of Aix with a pizza slice , sip a coffee and have a gelato.
Recommendation: Try a dark chocolate flavour at We Love Puro and a pizza slice from Pizza Capri.
Aix-en-Provence is well-served by high-speed TGV trains from Gare de Lyon in Paris. Multiple trains make the three-hour journey daily.
