Highlights of Aix-en-Provence, a vibrant city in the Provence region of France. Walk in the footsteps of Paul Cezanne and visit his studio. Take in a performance at one of the theatres, stroll Cours Mirabeau, enjoy coffee at one of the many cafes, such as Les Deux Garcons.
Aix en Provence, France. I went there in 2001. We are returning there in 2014. On Aix's Cours Mirabeau, canopied by plane trees, sprinkled with fountains, hemmed with cafés, I lose my sceptic's heart forever to the street labelled unblushingly "Europe's most captivating". And in the art de vivre city this is only the hors d'oeuvre.
