Visiting Aix-en-Provence in the Fall in Aix has an almost a dreamy feeling to it. Yes, I realize that’s a bit corny but I’m not sure how else to describe it. As much as I appreciate the uniqueness of all the seasons, Autumn is my favorite. The intense summer heat gently gives way to more mild daytime temperatures punctuated by crisp moonlit evenings, and French life in Aix begins to settle back into its “normal” routine, providing an ideal atmosphere for discovery.
Benefits for Visiting Aix-en-Provence in the Fall
In the Fall, the peak tourist crowds have gently faded, hotel and flight costs are typically less expensive, and the weather is still warm enough for shorts during the day and light sweaters in the evenings. What’s not to love?! I’m confident those with the flexibility to travel to Aix during off-peak times will agree with my lofty dreamy sentiment. You’ll find comfort and space in which to discover all that Aix-en-Provence has to offer.
Whether you’ll be visiting Aix-en-Provence for the first time, or it’s the next in a series of visits to this City of 1000 Fountains, consider taking a walking tour to learn the stories behind the magnificent sights that greet you at every turn. For example, the Place des Prêcheurs is one of the most lively pedestrian areas in the city, with charming cafés, outdoor markets, street entertainers, and breathtaking historical landmarks all existing in harmony. But did you know that in the 1600’s it was the setting for punishment of criminals? Thankfully there is not much risk of stumbling upon a gruesome public hanging these days, but the echos of the past remain just waiting to be revealed.
