Spend a Full Day in Aix En Provence with a Local Guide

Pick up at your ship and depart for the beautiful town of Aix en Provence. Follow your guide on the Cours Mirabeau lined with 17th and 18th centuries private mansions and where large plane trees give shade on hot summer days. Then move on to visit Place d’Albertas and see the fountain whose basin was made by local students. See the Four Dolphins Fountain, an impressive sculpture created in 1667.

Other landmarks of this vibrant city are the City Hall and the Cathedral Saint Sauveur, which features 12th-century buildings offering insight into Aix-en-Provence’s unique heritage. The old town is lined with shops, architectural and religious sites, bustling squares and refreshing fountains.

Take a stroll through one of the numerous markets taking place everyday in the center of the city. Aix is also the birthplace of the painter Paul Cézanne. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Cézanne’s workshop that was built from his own plans and where time seems to stand still (entrance ticket not included).
