Aix en Provence

City of Art and Culture

Aix-en-Provence, Provence by excellence

The stylish city of Aix enjoys a wonderful sunny climate, and its streets and squares are always vibrant and full of life. History is the backdrop to everyday life here: the grace and splendour of Baroque architecture are all around as you stroll through the streets, have fun shopping or relax on a café terrace. Each fountain has its secrets, each private mansion has its tale to tell. Country houses stand in parks and gardens as in past centuries. Aix is a mosaic of pictures, bright, with the colours of festivals, festivities and traditions, Provençal markets, sun-ripened foods, country walks and countless leisure activities… And the colours of Cézanne : coming here, you will actually get to know the father of modern painting, among the places and landscapes which marked his life, his outlook and his work. Our city is always welcoming, and offers so much to see, experience and discover.
