Make the most of your stay in the Southern French city with this free walking tour of Aix-en-Provence. You'll explore the rich culture, peaceful streets and beautiful terraces.

Aix-En-Provence Free Walking Tour 

Discover the beautiful town of Aix-en-Provence noted for its artistic culture and elegance. After meeting at 4 pm in Place de la Rotonde, in front of the statue of Cézanne, we'll begin wandering through the narrow picturesque streets and admiring the beautiful fountains and squares of the city.

Our first stop will be Cours Mirabeau, a square filled with fountains and 19th century mansions where we'll find the Café Les Deux Garçons, a popular meeting place of the 18th century bourgeoise. We'll then continue onwards to visit the Church of St John of Malta, famous during the Crusades, and the Fountain of the Four Dolphins.

Afterwards, we'll stop to discover the ancient ruins of the Roman city of Aquae Sextiae and La Place des Prêcheurs, the centre of city life in Medieval Aix-en-Provence.

As we explore the beautiful streets on our free walking tour, our guide will tell us all about its history, including what happened in the city during World War II. We'll make a stop to admire the 17th century City Hall before ending the tour in front of the impressive Aix Cathedral at around 6 pm.
