Travel from Marseille and head out along the road in your air-conditioned coach to traditional and charming Provençal town of Aix en Provence. Widely known as the home of famous Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne, Aix has a great deal to offer visitors and is a wonderful excursion from bustling Marseille.
Take a walk with your guide along the tree-lined Cours Mirabeau and perhaps take time to photograph the beautiful 17th- and 18th-century private mansions that line the avenue.
Continue onward and discover the boutiques, cafes and town squares of Aix en Provence’s Old Town. Explore the markets, stroll at your leisure and take in sights such as Albertas Square, City Hall, the Fountain of the Four Dolphins, Cardeurs Square, the Fountain of the Preachy and the Saint Sauveur Cathedral.
Visit Cézanne’s art studio and join an artists’ workshop. Gain an insight into Cézanne’s famous works before returning to enjoy the shady squares of his place of birth, Aix.
After four hours discovering the delights of Aix en Provence, return to Marseille where your tour will come to an end.
