Aix-en-Provence, a city guide
Be inspired as Cezanne was by the countryside surrounding the city that he called home. The Post-Impressionist painted used these surroundings for the subject of many works. You too can enjoy the beautiful limestone scenery that forms the backdrop to a city littered with pretty squares, fountains and cafes.

A Casa Bianca

La Table du Pigonnet
During summer, feast on seasonal produce on the sun-soaked terrace by the garden, under the shade of leafy chestnut trees. In winter, head indoors for unforgettable Mediterranean "bistronomique" cuisine.
Le Saint Esteve
Chef Mathias Dandine presents a menu of delicious Provencal cuisine at this Michelin-starred restaurant just outside Aix, mixing gourmet food with insipration from his southern French roots.
The great artist's former studio is one of the must-see sights of Aix-en-Provence. You can see Cezanne's plaster casts and his still life props: bottles, pottery, paper flowers and fabrics.
The city's most famous bouelvard leads to a beautiful fountain; the figures on the fountain represent Justice, Fine Arts and Agriculture.
