Situated southeast of Avignon in the heart of Provence, Aix is one of
the most beautiful towns in the south of France. It is especially noted
for its elegand 18th and 19th-century architecture. A stroll along the
tree-lined Cours Mirabeau, Aix's most famous boulevard, will take you
past aristocratic townhouses and wonderful sidewalk cafés; and
just north of the Cours Mirabeau is the medieval town center, a maze
of narrow, winding streets. In addition to its architectural delights,
Aix offers many arts and cultural events year-roud, including opera
and jazz festivals during the summer. And you can plan a variety of
day trips throughout the south of France, to destinations such as the
historic town or Arles, the Roman ruins at Nîmes, the Lubéron
Valley and market towns such as St-Remy. Marseille is an easy drive
to the south, as is the picturesque fishing village and resort of Cassis,
on the Mediterranean coast. Although Provence has become an increasingly
popular destination, much of the countryside remains unspoiled, with
farms, vineyards and tiny villages scattered across strikingly beautiful
valleys and mountainsides.
