Tour description provided by Viator

Discover the delights of the charming French town of Aix-en-Provence on this 4-hour private tour from Marseille. Hop into your air-conditioned vehicle in Marseille and travel to Aix. Walk along the tree-lined Cours Mirabeau with your guide, past 17th- and 18th-century private mansions. Take in sights such as the Fountain of the Preachy and Albertas Square, and explore at your leisure. Visit Cézanne’s art studio and join a painting workshop (payable separately,) before returning to Marseille.

Depart from Marseille in your air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the charming town of Aix-en-Provence. Located within easy driving distance of Marseille, Aix is an ideal place to visit for those keen to see a little more of France during their time in Marseille.

Stroll tree-lined boulevards such as the beautiful Cours Mirabeau with your guide, and soak up the town’s wonderful atmosphere. Marvel at the 17th- and 18th-century private mansions that line the route and perhaps pose for photographs with your friends.

Aix-en-Provence is bursting with chic boutiques, bustling town squares and markets, attractive fountains, traditional cafés and sites of special interest. See the Fountain of the Four Dolphins, the Fountain of the Preachy, Albertas Square, City Hall, Cardeurs Square and the Saint Sauveur Cathedral, and admire the architectural wealth Aix has to offer.

Paul Cézanne was a famous French Post-Impressionist painter who called Aix-en-Provence home, and the city remains justifiably proud. Visit Cézanne’s studio, join a painting workshop and gain an insight into his life and works. Entry is at your own expense.

After four hours discovering the delights of Aix-en-Provence, return to Marseille where your tour will come to an end.
