Aix-en-Provence is a small, classically Provençal town, famous for being home to Cézanne.
Change things up with these side-trips from Aix-en-Provence: Basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine (in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume), Marseille (Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, Cathédrale La Major, & more) and Calanques (in Cassis). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Paroisse Cathédrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence, admire the natural beauty at Pavillon de Vendome, make a trip to Cours Mirabeau, and admire the landmark architecture of Le Tour de l'Horloge.
