How to get to Aix-en-Provence from
Route 1:

The high-speed TGV service from Lille Europe to Nice takes around 7-8 hours, passing through the whole length of the French countryside.

There are only two services a day in either direction. A more frequent alternative journey, Paris - Nice (TGV) is also available, but can be a little more inconvenient than the Lille - Nice option if you are coming from a connecting train due to the cross-city Metro change at Paris.
