You can follow in the footsteps of much-loved French painter Paul Cezanne with a guided culture and history tour around Aix en Provence. The laid-back, picturesque city was the early inspiration for one of France´s most influential artists and you can discover his hometown and inspiration of Aix en Provence.

The eight hour tour of Aix en Provence starts in the morning where you will be introduced to some of the city´s most spectacular sites. Excursion in Paris. Admire the stunning architecture of the town hall and Gothic churches together with the 17th and 18th century mansions built by wealthy merchants during the town´s golden period when it was the celebrated seat of the Intendance of Provence. 

It is in the mornings when the city is at its most lively, as the sun-drenched afternoons can get a little humid, and especially on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays when the market is in full swing in the historical centre, the energy is positively buzzing. And guests on the private tour of Aix will get a chance to soak up the atmosphere as you explore the stalls of goat´s cheese, olive oil and provencal fabrics. 

After a sumptuous lunch in one of Aix´s pleasant cafes, the tour concentrates on the cultural aspects of the city and takes you to follow in the footsteps of the city´s most enamoured son, Paul Cezanne. Tour with private guide in Paris. Born in 1939, the post-impressionist lived in Aix until the age of 21 when he moved to Paris in order to pursue a career as an artist. 

Before leaving Aix, Cezanne had studied as a lawyer at the University here and you will learn much of the artist´s upbringing together with how Aix inspired his forward-thinking artistic development that would radically influence the art world some 50 years later.
