Discover the 17th century city center of Aix en Provence and take a walk on the steps of Paul Cézanne!

Spend a day exploring Aix en Provence, with its 17th-century buildings, local markets, and charming architecture!

Take a walk on the Cours Mirabeau with its private old mansions; then stroll around local shops, see the most famous architectural and religious sites, squares and fountains. Discover the Mazarin district and visit the "Saint Sauveur" cathedral and its cloister.

Aix en Provence is also the birthplace of the painter Paul Cézanne, claimed to be the inventor of the "Art Nouveau". You'll visit his studio, built according to his own plans and where he used to work during the last years of his life.

Finally, admire the Saint Victoire mountain from the upland "Painter's terrain" where Paul Cézanne used to paint "Sur le motif" (on the field).
