During this tour, your Licensed Tour Guide will pick you up from your hotel for a long day to Provence. Arriving at Aix en Provence (one of the most beautiful towns of Provence), you will visit the Hotel Caumont that was built in 1715 in the fashionable Mazarin area with the idea that it should ‘set itself apart from all other stately homes in Aix-en-Provence’. With its high carriage gate leading to an interior courtyard (at a time when most homes in town were set directly on the street), its great staircase, the central skylight, and the formal back gardens, the building certainly made a grand impression, this Hotel is a must see in Aix-en-Provence!
Then discover the charming old town of Aix-en-Provence with your Tour Guide before relaxing on the Cours Mirabeau for lunch. In the afternoon, you will visit Cezanne’s workshop and house from where he created some of his most important paintings. Finally, before heading back to Nice, enjoy a last stop at an Olive oil Domain facing the Sainte Victoire Mountain and get to taste local products in a warm house estate.
