A day of... history and discovery
Arrive at Aix-en-Provence and enjoy a private guided walking tour through the old town of Aix, the art city of Paul Cézanne. Discover the Provencal way of life strolling by the fountains, admiring the old buildings and classical architecture as well as old Provencal churches. Aix-en-Provence is a canvas of joyful impressions, of colourful festivals, festivities and traditions, Provencal markets, delicious sun-filled delicacies, walks in the countryside and relaxing activities. No visit to Aix is complete without a trip to Les Deux Garçons, the city's legendary brasserie known informally as the 2Gs. Paul Cézanne came here on occasion to enjoy a very leisurely three-hour apéritif with his friend, the novelist Emile Zola. Very many other famous names have enjoyed a glass here too, including Picasso, Churchill, Mistanguett, Edith Piaf, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Cocteau. After lunch, we will drive you out of Aix -en Provence along the famous panoramic ‘Cézanne’s road’ to the Mountain of Sainte Victoire which inspired over 40 of Cézanne’s paintings.
