Art lovers will feel right at home in Aix-en-Provence. The Musée Granet houses a collection of over 12,000 eclectic pieces of artwork, from classical sculpture to pop art. And be sure to visit the Atelier de Cezanne, the house where Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne lived and worked.
From your Aix-en-Provence accommodation take a stroll down the Cours Mirabeau, a central, tree-lined boulevard. Here you can do as the French do, and enjoy an aperitif at one of the many pavement cafes.
Step back in time at the Gothic Cathédrale Saint-Sauveur d’Aix-en-Provence, one of the most important national monuments in France. For a dual dose of art and architecture, stop by the Musée du Vieil Aix, housed in a 17th century mansion and home to unusual everyday objects as well as fine and folk art.
