We had a weekend with kids, dogs, friends and enjoyed a few lovely strolls down the Cours Mirabeau to the fountain at the end. It's all central to Aix, very walkable, very scenic. Can't wait to do it again soon!

This is beautiful BUT it is currently surrounded by construction. Hard to get a good view! Very busy area with lots of traffic, not as quaint as we would have liked. Glad to have sort of seen it:)

Not sure what the hype is for the multiple fountains know Aix-en-Provence that are covered with moss. I didn't find them very interesting or pretty to look at.

This unique fountain located in the heart of Cours Mirabeau is another photogenic tourist attraction. As shared by our guide it is very old (built in approx 1690's) and was then called Fountain Saint Lazare. It was renamed Fountain of Nine Canons later in 1760's....More

A pretty modern fountain in a very busy part of town, creates an open space and a bit of an oasis. Nice respite.
