Transportation and sightseeing
- Much of the old town, Vieil Aix, is pedestrian only, made for strolling through its labyrinth of narrow streets.
- Discover the 17th century Town Hall, the Archbishop’s Palace and St Sauveur Cathedral and its delightful Romanesque cloister.
- You can also appreciate a typical southern atmosphere at the market witch transforms places into real color-changing pictures.
- Cassis, located between cliffs, sea and vineyards and its Calanques (rocky little inlets with high limestone cliffs).
In this country, the landscape is marked by the emergence of a limestone fortress known around the world through Paul Cezanne’s paintings, the Sainte Victoire mountain.
The city of water, city of art and birthplace of the famous impressionist Paul Cézanne, Aix en Provence invites you to travel back in time through its architecture like a stage set. Much of the old town, Vieil Aix, is pedestrian only, made for strolling through its labyrinth of narrow streets.
You will continue with Cassis, an unspoiled fishing village dominated by a 14th century castle and surrounded by white limestone cliffs, umbrella pines and vineyards descending directly into the sea. Pastel houses and colorful wooden fishing boats curve around the little port. Take your time to do a little shopping or take a boat trip (not included) to marvel at the crystalline azure coves called Calanques and its smooth white cliffs.
