Aix, as in, X marks the spot! City of fountains and art, fancy people and students from every corner of the world, all facets of this Provençal gem.

We'll pick you up at your ship or hotel and drive strait to Aix-en-Provence (about 30 minutes from Marseille) to get a look at its lively morning markets.

We'll take a walking tour of the old town with its beautiful buildings, visit St. Sauveur Cathedral and the history museum (closed Tuesdays).

If you are a Cezanne fan, we can show you one of his favorite places to paint the Mont Saint Victoire. Just let us know!

A Recent Review of this tour

We highly recommend Kathy and Sam for a great introduction to the Aix-en-Provence city and surroundings. Aix has a wonderful morning market with period architecture, and Kathy's knowledge of the area is extensive. However, the highlight of our visit was Chateau La Coste -- much more than a vineyard! The wines in the tasting room were superb and the architecture outstanding. An outdoor art exhibit featured pieces by Calder, Gehry, Serra, Matisse and many others, a rare and precious find. Thanks again!
