Aix-en-Provence Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

A young and vibrant town, Aix-en-Provence lies in the shadow of the arid Mt Sainte Victoire, the rugged beauty of which Cézanne captured in a series of paintings. Traces of Aix's status as former capital of the counts of Provence can be seen in the noble façades lining the Cours Mirabeau and the majestic avenues, hidden squares and elegant fountains of the old town. Aix is also renowned for its calissons (sweets), and has a large student population, ensuring that the brasseries and cafe terraces are always lively.
