Aix-en-Provence is a charming little city about 3-hour train ride from Nice. To be honest, getting to the city centre wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped. You’ll have to get yourself to the Gare d’Aix-en-Provence TGV, their high speed train station, then take the bus (you can purchase the 4€ ticket onboard. Credit cards are accepted, but the terminal didn’t work somehow so luckily I had some small change with me). This blog post was really helpful.
I also have to mention that there is another bus that takes you back to Gare d’Aix-en-Provence TGV. Best to always reconfirm with station staff.

From the bus station, it’s a 15-20 minute walk into the (tiny) heart of Aix-en-Provence, where you’re transported to another world. A friend (and former colleague) of mine have told me that one night in Aix-en-Provence is more than sufficient to soak it all in, but I booked for 2 nights anyway because my itinerary was still open.
Boy, was she right.

Aix-en-Provence was the perfect introduction to the Provence region for me (sorry, Nice!), and I couldn’t wait to explore my next destination: Cassis.
