Aix-en-Provence is a small, classically Provençal town, famous for being home to Cézanne.
Explore hidden gems such as Canoe Evasion and Wine Tours & Tastings. Take a break from Aix-en-Provence with a short trip to La Collegiale Notre Dame des Anges in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, about 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Cours Mirabeau, admire the striking features of Mairie d'Aix-en-Provence, walk around Terrain des Peintres (Painters Park), and examine the collection at Musee Granet.
