Description

We’ll leave by coach for Aix-en-Provence. At the foot of Mount Sainte-Victoire and surrounded by impeccably preserved countryside dotted with Provençal fortified towns, lies Aix-en-Provence. Mount Sainte-Victoire itself is a symbol of the bucolic landscapes so many artists have used as inspiration. Aix-en-Provence was founded by the Romans in 123 BC and is considered the historical capital of the region. Aix today shows off its rich architectural heritage through the superbly restored and maintained bourgeois homes, small squares bursting with flowers, private mansions, and ancient fountains. Paul Cézanne, whom many consider the father of modern art, was born here. We’ll follow the footpath marked with “C” from the home where he was born to his final resting place. This tour takes you to the highlights of his childhood as well as the cafés where he found inspiration among his friends and fellow artists. At the end of our stroll, we’ll enjoy a tasting of the city’s most famous delight, the Calissons.
