Mont Ste. Victoire and Aix en Provence Tour
On this private tour from Marseille, you will discover the charms of Aix en Provence. Founded by the Romans in 103 B.C., the city was invaded and damaged by the Barbarians, yet still managed to stay prosperous. Aix en Provence became the capital of Provence at the end of the 12th century.
Your private guide will take you on a walking tour of this vibrant city, appreciating the sumptuous architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as Aix-en-Provence’s markets and cafés, mansions and fountains, and lively streets and lovely stores.
After touring Aix your tour will follow in the footsteps of the painter Cézanne, who was born in Aix en Provence. Cézanne produced many paintings of the town’s surroundings, such as the Mount Sainte-Victoire. This majestic limestone formation was one of his favorite subjects. You will also see his last studio, l’Atelier des Lauves, where he completed many of his greatest works.
