Cours Mirabeau, Aix-en-Provence

A wide, bustling boulevard, Cours Mirabeau stretches 440 m (1,500 ft) long and 42 m (130 ft) wide. It has a number of cafes, some more than 100 years old, which were once visited by Nobel laureate Albert Camus. The street's wide sidewalks are planted with double rows of trees. Cool off at the fountains, the largest of which, La Rotonde, lies at one end of the street. The street divides Aix into two portions, the Quartier Mazarin, or the "new town," which extends to the south and west, and the Ville Comtale, the "old town," which lies to the north. Wander from the boulevard to the old town's wide streets and old French mansions dating from the 16th century.

  • In the heart of AIX, you absolutely have to go through that. The ideal is to have a drink on one of the many terraces and then to prolong with a good meal!

  • We were able to stroll on this pretty lively and sunny place. Bars and restaurants follow. Bravo to the "Belle Epoque" and to the "Brasserie Leopold", just a few steps away, 2 Avenue Victor Hugo. The merchants of the city are charming: Chocolaterie Yves Thuriès with its succulent calissons; "the jam House" offers delicious products (especially mango jam/coconut/lemon and white chocolate!), the boss does not hesitate to make taste: thank you! Great kindness of the saleswoman of the "basket of senses", young House that presents good products. A little tour at "l'Italien" (rue d'Italie... This is not invented!) with the joy of living of the young patroness and her delicious products. Aix en Provence is a beautiful and welcoming city. We will have to come back to discover its beautiful mansions and museums.
