Aix-en-Provence, known by the locals simply as “Aix,” is a southern French town that radiates class. This city is full of centuries-old mansions, detailed sculptures, ornate fountains. Break out your camera for a visit to Aix Cathedral, a national monument of France built on the site of the 1st-century Roman forum of Aix. Visit the fascinating Musée d'Orsay on the left bank of the Seine to get a glimpse of works by legendary painters like Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, and even Van Gogh.

Take a leisurely walk down Cours Mirabeau, a tree-lined pedestrian street that is home to many great cafes like the famous Les Deux Garçons, decorated at the end by the grand Fontaine de la Rotonde. Escape the city to experience southern France’s rugged and beautiful landscapes on Montagne Sainte-Victoire, a popular destination for biking, hiking, and climbing with a view that has the power to hypnotize.
