My favorite sights of Aix-en-Provence

If there was a town that I could fall in love with after a single short visit, Aix was it. I am naturally predisposed to historic places with centuries-old architecture, small, even intimate confines, and atmospheric quality. Aix-en-Provence is all that.

This one shot of a fountain and a cafè on a small square tucked away from motorized traffic perfectly explains what I like about Aix.

There are a few of those in the old part of the town.

Just as there are many streets such as the one below on the left, with street-side restaurants taking up most of the sidewalk. Remarkable edifices, such as the Clock Tower in the shot below on the right, obviously enhance the town’s appearance.

Too bad our visit to Aix had to be limited to only a few hours. The next one will be longer, I’m sure.
