Discover Aix-en-Provence with a private guide
Visit Aix in Cézanne's footsteps .
Aix was founded by a roman's general in 125 BC and became the capital of Provence at the medieval time. That city is an out door museum, its pedestrian city center is decorated by beautiful classic and baroque style mansions from 17th and 18th century.
Stroll through lovely squares and markets, enjoy the refreshing fountains, and breathe the atmosphere of this very "provençale" town.
After exploring the old town, its squares, market, mansions, fountains, . . . You will visit the Paul Cezanne's studio studio purposely built at the end of his life so that he could easily view Mont Sainte Victoire. You will be surprised to feel the artist's presence there as if he had just left it.
Then, I will take you to "Les Lauves" hill to enjoy the viewpoint where Cézanne painted many of those Mont Sainte Victoire pictures .

Only a part of our group went with Thibault for the tour. We enjoyed a coffee first in Aix and then a walking tour of the town. Thibault was a attentive to our 11 year old, answering many questions. Then we were off to a winery for lunch and a wine tasting. We shorten the day some and was wise because of traffic and need to return to port in a timely manner.
