What do I need to know before moving to Aix-en-Provence?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Aix-en-Provence, they said...

"Aix-en-Provence is a city in the South of France, known for its historical and cultural significance, and is often referred to as the city of a thousand fountains. French is the official language, so it would be beneficial to learn some basic French phrases before moving, although many locals do speak English. The cost of living in Aix-en-Provence is relatively high compared to other French cities, especially for housing, so it's important to budget accordingly. The city has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, so pack your wardrobe accordingly. Aix-en-Provence is a walkable city with a reliable public transportation system, including buses and trains, making it easy to get around without a car. The city is known for its vibrant arts scene, with numerous museums, galleries, and festivals throughout the year, offering plenty of cultural activities. Aix-en-Provence is also known for its cuisine, particularly its local produce and wine, so be prepared to indulge in some fantastic food and drink. Healthcare in France is of a high standard, and you will need to register with the French healthcare system or have private health insurance. The city is generally safe, but like any city, it's important to be aware of your surroundings and take basic safety precautions. Aix-en-Provence has a large expat community, so there are plenty of resources and groups to help you settle in and meet new people. The city is also close to other major cities like Marseille and Nice, making it a great base for exploring the rest of the region. Finally, it's important to remember that the pace of life in Aix-en-Provence is slower than in many other cities, so be prepared to embrace a more relaxed lifestyle," said a member in Aix-en-Provence , France.
