Aix-en-Provence - Tourism in the Bouches-du-Rhône

Famous for its relaxed pace of life, the city of Aix-en-Provence is also known for the charm of its old town and renowned Mirabeau square. Decorated with beautiful plane trees, the old town is the perfect place for a stroll: pleasant small squares, numerous mansions of the 17th and 18th centuries, charming fountains, pretty shops, lively cafe terraces, flower markets, but also fruits and vegetables markets filled with the colours and scents of Provence.

The old town also offers visitors the Saint-Sauveur cathedral and its cloister of the 12th and 13th centuries, the town hall with its square and its Horloge tower, the so romantic Albertas square, and its museums, such as Old Aix museum, the Natural History museum and Paul Cézanne's studio.

The city, also known for its thermal baths since the Romanesque period, offers hydrotherapy treatment. Aix-en-Provence also offers a wide range of events, such as the International festival of Opera (Baroque music and Mozart operas), the water festival and Dance in Aix, a contemporary dance festival.
