Paul Cézanne…a brilliant painter. And where did he get his brilliance and inspiration? He was from Aix-en-Provence, and its light and scenery allowed him to thrive. We can’t promise you’ll turn into a brilliant painter on your trip to Aix-en-Provence. But we can promise you’ll be inspired and enthralled with the town’s beauty just like Cézanne. From people-watching at cafés to strolling down pedestrian streets and browsing through colorful markets, Aix-en-Provence is sure to delight. And no one brings you Aix-en-Provence like Monograms! On this 3-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, a local insider who will be on hand to ensure your vacation runs smoothly.</BR> </BR>Your Local Host will meet you at your hotel when you arrive and present you with a set of materials to familiarize you with this beautiful town. If you have questions, your Local Host will answer them and provide you with some suggestions. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ve arranged for you to enjoy guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who knows the town’s inside stories and interesting history. You’ll walk along the 17th-century Cours Mirabeau, the town’s charming, tree-lined avenue with its fountains, elegant homes, and famous cafés. This is a perfect place to people-watch! You’ll see the Mazarin Quarter, with houses built in the 17th century; City Hall; and the Jewish Quarter. We’ll take you inside the Cathedral of the Holy Saviour, known for its interesting combination of architectural styles and Nicolas Fromet’s art masterpiece, Burning Bush Triptych, one of the most famous paintings in Europe from the 15th century. </BR></BR>You’ll also have free time to explore Aix-en-Provence on your own. Perhaps follow in the footsteps of Cézanne and visit his studio. Maybe enjoy a thermal bath, wander through the market, or visit one of the many museums. You may want to just relax at a café watching the town’s residents in action. Your Local Host will have suggestions for activities for you. </BR></BR>Don’t forget your package includes daily breakfast, so you’ll start each day ready to explore. Between the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, the breakfast we’ve included, and the hotel we’ve booked, you just have to enjoy yourself—which is what this town inspires!
