The Mirabeau Course

A walk in Aix-en-Provence

A short walk to discover the city of Aix-en-Provence

The city of Aix-en-Provence is located 30 kilometres from Marseille in this Provence so often described by painters and writers. The walk in the heart of the old town is pleasant, but the buildings could be better maintained. What makes Aix-en-Provence so charming are the small squares with fountains where it is nice to linger in the shade of the trees to have a drink with friends.
