How to Spend 2 Days in Aix-en-Provence

How to Spend 2 Days in Aix-en-Provence

The main village highlights in Aix-en-Provence can be seen in a day, so two days in Aix lets you explore more of the surrounding Provençal countryside. Picturesque vineyards, lavender fields, olive farms, sunflower fields, and more are just a short drive. Here’s what you need to know to make the most out of two days in Aix-en-Provence.

Day 1: Essential Aix-en-Provence

**Morning:**Get acquainted with Aix-en-Provence by heading directly into Old Town. Stop by the daily market at Place Richelme and browse the seasonal produce and enjoy a coffee and pastry in the square. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, check out the larger market, Le Grand Marché, for artisan crafts and Provencal goods. 

**Afternoon:**After lunch in the trendy Cours Mirabeau district, explore the narrow streets and cobbled back alleyways of the city’s main street. Aix is often called the City of a Thousand Fountains and you won’t want to miss Fountain of the Rotunda (Fontaine de la Rotonde) and Nine Canon Fountain (Fontaine des Neuf-Canons).

**Night:**End your day on a culinary tour of Aix-en-Provence, sampling traditional Provençal food including local meats, cheeses, olive oils, tapenade, and sweets such as navettes and calissons, as well as wine. Alternatively, learn how to cook Provençal dishes yourself with a hands-on cooking class. 

Day 2: The Provençal Countryside

**Morning:**Rise early and head out into the Provençal countryside to tour a lavender farm. Learn about the history of lavender production and shop for artisan lavender oils and products. Join a guided lavender fields tour from Aix-en-Provence or head to the Valensole Plateau and explore on your own. 

**Afternoon:**The vineyards surrounding Aix-en-Provence produce some of the finest wines in France. Spend the afternoon visiting vineyards and learn about the unique climate and soil required to produce the region's wine. Sample an array of rosés, well-balanced reds, and fragrant whites from Provence. 

**Night:**Make the most of your last evening in Aix-en-Provence by dining at the famed Les Deux Garcons. Founded in 1792, Les Deux Garcons was once frequented by Pablo Picasso, Paul Cézanne, and Winston Churchill. The brasserie offers a variety of seafood, bouillabaisse, and steaks, and the terrace is a great place for people watching.
