    Overview

    Pretty place Aix en Provence is stately and entangled by medieval lanes and tempting restaurants. Visit the city of water and art that holds an old-world charm with its 17th and 18th century private mansions.
     
    Also referred to as the City of a Thousand Fountains, experience a combination of tradition and nature as you go about walking along Cours Mirabeau and discovering the markets in the heart of the city.
     
    Check out the numerous shops, architectural and religious sites, bustling squares, refreshing fountains and the surrounding views of the 1,011 metres high Mount St Victoire that served as a great inspiration to Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne, a native of Aix-en-Provence.
     
    Visit Cézanne Studio built by him. Cezanne spent the last four years of his life creating masterpieces under the glass roof that allowed the rays of the sun to pour in the day and the moonlight filled the room in darkness at night. Get a sneak peek into the artist’s private life as his canvases, porcelain wares, bottles, vases and plastered fruits lay scattered around the studio.
