Upon arrival to Aix-en-Provence, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the old capital. The city prospered under the Romans due to its medicinal springs. The gracious air of Aix today owes much to the nobles who built their fine houses and endowed the city with imposing public buildings from the 16th century onwards. Cours Mirabeau lies at the heart of Aix, aristocratic façades of old mansions line the avenue, with wrought iron balconies and finely carved doorways. Here you can admire some of the finest examples of the ‘healing’ fountains for which Aix is renowned.

Explore the old quarter and the beautiful Saint Sauveur Cathedral, which is exceptionally rich in works of art, and is noted for its Merovingian baptistery and grandiose organ.      

Enjoy some free time on your own to discover the city further or indulge yourself in a spot of shopping in one of Aix-en-Provence’s many fabulous boutiques.
