Aix en Provence Tourism

Bonjour! (Hello in French)

The city of art, activity and luxury, Aix en Provence is known as the ultimate travel destination for tourists looking to indulge and soak up the French southern sun. Historically, Aix marks the place where Roman forces enslaved the original inhabitants of the Ligurian Celtic tribe of Entremont. In the 12th Century, the counts of Provence reclaimed Aix as their capital and it became a centre of culture and arts under the patron of King Rene. There are many tourist attractions in Aix en Pro It is also home to painter Paul Cezanne and novelist Emile Zola. Although the area is small and can be explored on foot, there’s plenty to see in this city for a tourist looking for an uber-sophisticated travel experience. With its leafy boulevards and public squares lined with 17th and 18th Century mansions, littered with moss-covered fountains, take a walk through The Cours Mirabeau, and make a pit-stop at the famous French espressos and the bookstores. There are enough neighbourhoods, museums and cathedrals to take you through the historic and modern art scene in France.
