Travel Guide Aix en Provence Get to know Aix en Provence

Getting around Aix-en-Provence

A real motorway hub, Aix-en-Provence can be visited in several ways. But the easiest way to move easily in the city is to give priority to the use of cars, buses or TGV that are accessible to the general public.

The Aix-en-Provence train station is located 17 km from the city center which has no rail network with that of the SNCF nor any rail network with Marseille Provence airport which is located 25 km.

Several buses and taxis carry out, among other things, several connections from the aerodrome to the many localities nearby. However, Aix-en-Provence does not have any tram or metro network. Public transport mainly concerns buses, minibuses, electric vehicles, the famous Diabline and Victorine.

Car drivers will certainly be spoiled, as they will have at their disposal not less than 9 car parks in the city center and 4 others in the peripheries (also dedicated to bus shuttles). However, it is important to know that traffic in the heart of Aix-en-Provence between semi-pedestrian paths and no - way streets  are , in most cases, complicated.

It is therefore more advisable to prefer walking all the more so as the important tourist sites are not very remote from each other. Moreover, the city is willing to undertake a process of semi-pedestrianization (an option only for residents).

Vehicles as well as motorcycles are excellent means of locomotion which are ideal to facilitate your movements during your exploration sessions. These are the most adapted to visit Aix-en-Provence in all its entirety. Also, it's a nice answer that changes trains and buses that, as we know, do not serve all the localities.

If you need a car, you can also rent it in Aix-en-Provence. You can easily find rental accommodation on site. However, it is necessary to inquire in advance about services with prices (mileage, tax, insurance, etc.).
