by orchid1949

For travelling to Moustiers Sainte-Marie it may be best to ask the local tourist office who will have the timetables for the day of your travel.

email also shown on that page.

Les Baux de Provence is more difficult. Again best ask the local tourist office for latest public transport information. It is isolated and difficult to get to.

Thank you Peurto-Lover. I may take an excursion with Provence tourism. Is it worthwhile for an afternoon visit ?

Travel Tips for Aix-en-Provence

Enjoy the shopping and people...

by BarryCorwin

Enjoy the shopping and people watching. Relax and have lunch on the main blvd and then walk through all the little back ways. If you are driving, park away from town and walk. We were only there from 11 to 6 but could have spent
another day. No Great Cathedrals like Avignon, but a very cosmo sort of city and enjoyable.

Tourist Office tours

by rickyvilla81

The Office de Tourisme at the Rotonde offers a whole host of delightful little tours, mostly walking tours of Aix but also some visits to other parts of Provence. The guided Aix tours start at 4€ for the small hour long walks to 8€ for the more detailed "visites decouvertes".

Calissons d'Aix

by rickyvilla81 about Bechard

There is, on the Banks side of the Cours Mirabeau, a really nice Calissonerie - that is, a shop that makes the traditional Aixois sweet, the Calisson. You can buy these little almond flavoured diamonds all over Provence, but I really like this shop. There is a lot of choice for sweet things - chocolate olives, all that - but the Calissons are the main thing, so if you want to get someone a really nice pressie, get the some Calissons. Now, the shop in question is called Bechard, but it matters not a whit, for it is very pricey and you can get them anywhere. So voila.

If you must copy Cezanne...

by rickyvilla81 about Les Deux Garçons

For those of you who are interested in the life of Paul Cézanne, you will no doubt have been taking the Cézanne walk around Aix, in which case you will ahve come across Les Deux Garçons. Situated towards the end of the Cours Mirabeau, this brasserie cafe dates back to 1792 (great time to open a cafe, in the bloodiest period of Revolution, but there you are, this is France!) and is the traditional Aix spot for posing and people-watching. (What am I saying, that takes place everywhere in Aix!) The artist himself used to come here, and if you've read Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence there is an illustration in the June section of a woman drinking pastis and eating Calissons in front of the cafe. There are many places up and down the Cours to sit and watch, but this is perhaps the most famed one. I never ate here, only came in for a beer one afternoon.

Cours de Mirabeau

by JanPeter74

The Cours de Mirabeau is the central avenue of Aix. It runs from the “Rotonde” roundabout and divides the old city centre area from the university area. I must say that because of its reputation I expected it to be a bit longer. At the far end of it, you can find a statue of good King René (1409-1480). The Cours de Mirabeau is lined with plane-trees (Sycamores) and has several fountains in the middle of the driveway (by the way it is not a through road). On one side you can find terraces (as well as a Monoprix department store) the other side is used for the many markets throughout the week, both during the day as well as during the evening.
