Aix-en-Provence, more commonly known simply as 'Aix', can be found in the south of France, some 30 kilometres north of Marseille. The city is almost two thousand years old and has seen a great deal of history in its lifetime, having been founded by Romans, lived in by Visigoths, plundered by Franks and Saxons, as well as invaded by Saracens and occupied by Charles Martel! With all those influences, it is no surprise that Aix-en-Provence has absorbed the best of all these cultures, as can be seen in the architecture and even the very layout of the urban areas. Aix is a great city to drive through, boasting wide roads and easy access to both historic and beautiful sights in the city and nearby. Enterprise Rent-a-Car is practically in the local train station.
