Discover stunning Aix-en-Provence with an intimate private tour through this ancient city with a youthful soul. At Marseille Port, board an air-conditioned coach for your morning or afternoon tour. Meet your local guide and learn about Aix’s Roman history as you cruise northward through scenic Provençe.
Upon arrival, you’ll disembark near Cours Mirabeau, the city’s main central boulevard. Stroll down the boutiquey thoroughfare and admire diverse markets, shops, bakeries, cafés and colorful, 19th-century buildings. Take in the scenery and enjoy fascinating stories about the town and its famous visitors and residents, including Albert Camus, Paul Cézanne and Émile Zola, as you follow your guide to the Place du Général de Gaulle.
As you tour the city, witness the spectrum of Aix’s preserved architecture, from 12th-century buildings to more ‘modern’ constructions dating from the last 300 years. Admire the town’s many spectacular fountains such as the Fontaine d’Eau Thermale (Thermal Water Fountain) and the Place d’Albertas fountain, and grand buildings like Cathédral Saint-Sauveur d’Aix and Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall).
Your tour includes an optional visit to the Atelier Paul Cézanne at Les Lauves (own expense), a must for any fan of Cézanne’s work. View the meticulously preserved studio where Cézanne created his final masterpieces and attend a memorable art workshop.
