Once the capital of Provence, Aix-en-Provence has maintained the majesty and style that comes with being an economic and cultural center. Cours Mirabeau is the center of this charming town. This tree-lined avenue is the perfect place to take a scenic stroll or to watch passersby from one of the many cafés.
Home to several art schools and universities Aix-en-Provence has become the site of several annual festivals such as the International Festival of Lyric Arts and Music and The Dance Festival.
Of note are the fountains and architecture of the town. Aix-en-Provence is often referred to as the city of a thousand fountains. The town is known for its many ornate and flowered squares and beautiful fountains.
