    Located in the beautiful, elegant area south of the touristy Cours Mirabeau, this is a superb restoration of a historical mansion. The interior details are elegant and fresh: along the stairs one can see some excellent photos taken during the restoration project. The galleries upstairs, currently showing a superb exhibition of the work of Dufy, are well-air conditioned which make for a very comfortable visit!
    A 30-minute video of the life of local art hero Cezanne is also well worth watching.
    The very attractive restaurant, in 3 beautiful restored salons, as well as a spacious outdoor area, serves very good, though not inexpensive, lunches.
    A visit to the Hotel de Caumont was a true highlight of our short visit to Aix: a most refreshing contrast to the commercial tourism along the nearby Cours Mirabeau and Old Town.

    Everytime I walked this beatiful street, I felt like I was mystical adventure. Each time, I made a new discovery.

    One of those amazing old towns to walk around and see the sights, this is one of those places to explore have a coffee and buy some of the local products of Provence.

    Probably good for a hald day, or a full day if you also have lunch. This city might have the most fountains I have ever seen,

    Next to a lovely church, this museum combines gems of an archeological collection with paintings (incl. Cezanne and Picasso) from several periods incl. a room for works of Giacometti.

    This is a beautiful cathedral with lots of varied artwork. I loved that you were able to see how it changed over time with elements from the 6th century visible, as well as Gothic elements. Lovely to absorb the history and peace.

    Wine tasting and tour review only. The tour was nice, guide was kind. Wine was pretty good for the region. The restaurants looked quite good although we had already eaten and didn’t try them.

    We are big fans of Vasarely and had seen a fantastic exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in the spring, so we were very excited to visit this museum again. Sadly, many of the works are being refurbished, so some display areas were closed. However, Vasarely's work is just amazing and the paintings displayed are just brilliant. I hope more visitors to Aix-en-Provence make an effort to see this incredible art space dedicated to an awesome artist.

    Cézanne never lived there, and he only used The atelier for 5 years. Even though, it feels like visiting him, when you get there. If you like his paintings, it is a good Way, to learn a little about his life.

    This is the first stop we try to make in a new city. The tourist office always has very good information on what to see and when to see it. They recommended the little city train, which we took, in order to get oriented. Wise choice!

    6 euros to get in to see a mix of art from Picasso to Alex Kosta. Not all to my taste, but a fabulous converted chapel, lift access, quiet, and easy to find.

    It is a good visit to learn how they make the calissons. We were on our own and it was fine, glad we didn’t pay for a guided visit.
    The virtual calisson making is a fun machine and you get a mini-calisson as a reward.
    The shop is nice, but prices are higher than your regular supermarket. You though get some varieties and flavours that I have not seen in the stores.

    I recommend the gardens more than the pavilion itself, which is small and is filled with modern, temporary exhibits versus historic pieces and history on the building. But the gardens are beautiful and very well kept – you may find locals here on a nice day, but not many tourists.

    Very small park but also very pretty view and peaceful. It’s a bit of a hike from town but it’s lovely to see where Cezanne painted, and is close to Atelier Cezanne, if you’re headed that way anyway.
