Tour Description :

Aix-en-Provence is one of the most attractive cities of Provence with lovely squares and narrow streets, honey-colored noble houses, fountains singing everywhere. The 40,000 students also create a very unique atmosphere.

Your guide will take you all over the historical centre to discover the different facets of the city. 3 times a week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, the big Provencal market is a delight and is a place where you'll find all the local specialties, food of course but not only. There are also colorful baskets and fabrics, potteries, jewels, scarfs etc. making locals and visitors happy.

After lunch, you’ll follow your private guide in the footsteps of the painter Cezanne who was born in Aix and made famous the town’s surroundings, such as the Mount Sainte-Victoire, a majestic limestone formation and one of his favorite subjects. When getting close to it, you understand why the painter was fascinated by this mountain. You will also discover his last studio, l’Atelier des Lauves, where he completed many of his greatest works at the end of his life and where you strongly feel the presence of the artist.
