We went on a Saturday in the evening and it was beautiful. It was pretty crowded but not enough to make it hard to navigate through. There are a lot of restaurants and cafes and little shops that sell lavender, soaps, patisserie, food markets etc. nice to take a stroll and do some shopping. Cute little alleys too.

Sped 1-2 hours walking in the pedestrian zone. Narrow streets and historical buildings (Renaissance and baroque) most of them not in good conditions. But the area is nice and full of shops (mainly for tourists).

It was the second week of December and very cold but the the old city was very lively, especially at lunch time, and full of things to see: quaint squares, lovely cafés, shops and restaurants. Many of its streets are mostly pedestrian. It was fascinating watching the change in use of some of its squares, a delightful well stocked fresh... More

The little (mostly) pedestrian roads to the north of the Cours Mirabeau, up to the clock tower and St Saveur church. Absolutely the Place d'Albertas for the fountain's charm. Possibly wander the grid streets south of MIrabeau, glancing at the fountains up and down Mirabeau. Note that all the restaurants are grouped (and hidden) around the Place Forum des Cardeurs....

The elegant Old Town w/ winding streets, boutiques, restaurants & water fountains was founded in 123 BC by the Romans and is located 30 km north of Marseille. The ideal way to visit this charming area is to start at Cezanne's Atelier and to walk 10 min. down to the impressive historic St. Saveur Cathedral from the 6th-16th C. and... More

A maze of small interesting narrow streets with no cars surrounded on the ring road by car parks interesting boutique shops and many restaurants but be careful many are rubbish tourist traps so carefully read the menu and look at the the other people inside before you sit down The Cathedral is well worth a visit

Vieil Aix is beautiful and rich in culture. I spent hours walking the small almost car free streets and discovered something new every day. Lots of unique shops and something for everyone. Delicious bakeries, perfume shops, wine shops, cheese and souvenirs from Provence galore!
