Enjoy total immersion in the lively atmosphere of Aix-en-Provence, discover its rich cultural and artistic heritage, visit St. Sauveur Cathedral and one of Cezanne’s favorite painting spots. Follow your guide through the old town of Aix: marvel at the famous 17th and 18th-century architecture, and taste local specialties such as "calissons", biscuits and nougats in the typical Provençal markets.

Take a pleasant stroll among countless fountains, sculptures and monuments. Your guide will accompany you inside one of the most beautiful cathedrals in France, the Cathedral of Saint-Sauveur, which was built on an ancient temple dedicated to Apollo, the Roman god. Admire the ancient baptistery and the magnificent medieval cloisters.

Cézanne fans won't miss the opportunity to visit the hill on which he painted one of his most famous subjects: Mont Sainte-Victoire. The great painter, who's considered one of the fathers of modern art, is the emblem of Aix-en-Provence. During the tour, you will find out more about him in the Hôtel de Caumont Art Center, a newly restored private mansion turned into an exhibition hall and auditorium.
