We've often heard that the best parts of Aix are outside the confines of the city, and I think this is probably true. A year ago we may have visited the region to go wine tasting and have a fancy dinner out on the town, but those kinds of trips have been put on temporary hold. Instead, we decided to spend the afternoon walking the city center and eating a quick lunch while Ramona napped. It had been a long morning in Marseille
, but Aix is only 30km away and we didn't want to miss the opportunity to squeeze in a visit. It was a gorgeous day in Provence, so we relaxed and enjoyed our time of leisurely strolling a new town.
It was very cool to explore the little streets of Aix. Man, there is some good shopping there! I could have done some serious damage. There's an abnormal amount of adorable children's boutiques. I picked up some gifts for expecting friends and thing or two for Ramona. I especially liked perusing all the unique finds at Le Petit Souk
and Emilie et Compagnie
We had a delightful lunch of yummy sandwiches and sodas at a teeny restaurant in an alleyway. They had table that must have been 20 feet long, carved from a single piece of wood. It was gorgeous.

We took in the grand Cathédrale Saint Sauveur and visited a few of Aix's many fountains. Our Little Miss slept the entire time.
It was a very nice way to spend the afternoon.
