At the foot of Sainte-Victoire mountain, Aix-en-Provence is a wonderful place for visitors to relax with the scent of Provençal scrublands in the air. Treat yourself to a cheap holiday at Aix-en-Provence’s ibis hotel, which is close to the old town but also has all the charm of the Aix countryside.
Aix-en-Provence’s historic district is a living museum. From Rue Cardinale to the Saint-Sauveur village, you will discover baroque masterpieces like the Palais de l’Archevêché and medieval buildings such as the ‘tour de l’Horloge’ clock tower. Your adventure will unfold to a backdrop of the murmuring fountains dotted around the squares. Wander down the little streets lined with ochre and distinctively yellowish houses to find the Musée Granet. We recommend it to anyone who would like to see some exquisite painting, including works by Cézanne. In another of Aix’s unmissable culture destinations, the Fondation Vasarely, you will see contemporary art in a building blessed with astonishing futuristic architecture.
