Art and architecture in Aix-en-Provence

Stylish Aix-en-Provence (External link) is the south of France’s answer to Paris: a network of grand leafy boulevards and elegant 17th-century Baroque architecture, all basking in the unstinting Provençal sunshine. The old centre of Aix is steeped in history and partly pedestrianised – but Aix is also a city of the modern age, with a thriving student population and a casino, three cinemas and numerous clubs and bars. One of Aix’s highlights is the art of post-Impressionist Paul Cézanne (External link). You can take a ‘Cézanne tour’ of the town: explore the house where he began painting, with a walk around the grounds and the family property of Jas de Bouffan. Also see his works in the Musée Granet (External link)’s dedicated exhibition space, and catch a specially-commissioned film about Cézanne screened throughout the day at the Caumont Centre d’Art (External link).
