Discover Aix, the former capital of the Provence region. It’s also the town of the tempestuous politician Mirabeau and the famous painter Paul Cezanne. You’ll love the old-fashioned atmosphere of the place, which has managed to hang on to most of its character from the 17th and 18th-centuries. Your guide will lead you for about 1 hour, through the old town, from tree-lined Cours Mirabeau to Quartier Mazarin, passing elegant old hotels, majestic avenues and splashing fountains along the way. Then you’ll get some free time for shopping, an al fresco lunch, or perhaps a little more exploring, before meeting your guide and heading back to the ship.
