A handful of Parisian elegance deep in Provençe, this is Aix with all its class. The tree-shaded boulevards and squares, lined with stately 17th- and 18th-century houses, accented by softly gurgling moss-covered fountains make up the flair of this town. Proud stone lions guard the largest street, the café-strewn cours Mirabeau, where the fashion-conscious ladies and gentlemen of Aix pose on polished ground to indulge in their show or sip their café.
History is the drama of everyday life here, a pleasurable shopping trip combines with the noble heritage, a drink on a terrace with beautiful architecture and a stroll through the city with baroque splendor. Every fountain holds a secret, every stately home has a story to tell. The country houses are adorned by parks and gardens as they were created over the centuries.
Aix-en-Provençe is a stage for beautiful memories, for colorful festivals, celebrations and traditions, Provençal markets, delicious sun-drenched delicacies or walks in nature.
Whether for a drink or a dance, Aix-en-Provençe offers a wide range of nighttime amusements and activities.
Just walk up and down the streets of the historic center and you'll find the atmosphere that suits your mood. The subdued atmosphere of the wine bars seduces its guest or do you prefer the convivial, sporty or student atmosphere in a pub?
And in the end, the dance floors are waiting for those who are not afraid to really break a sweat.
