Cities of Provence

Here's what i've gathered about nearby big cities from talking to the locals:

Aix: has a university, so is good for young people

Nice: very expensive, lots of older people there, but still "Nice is nice•

Marseille: beautiful coastal city, but high crime rate

We're going to Aix this weekend.

  1. Aix is also very pretty, but like all of France, has lots of graffiti filling almost every wall to a height of 8 ft or so. Very disappointing. We were in Aix for the trimming of the trees on their main avenue in October. One day the public works crews came in and just topped all the trees. This gives the avenue more sunlight so that people can be more comfortable as the fall temps drop.
