    Important to note two things: careers are available with a tour guide from the tourist office, and in the summer they are not open when the fire risk is black. Apart that, the visit is very interesting and plunges you into the life of Cézanne spending her days painting

    Booked a tour of the quarry through the Visitor centre. Well worth the €7 that included a shuttle from the carpark and a guide. We met the stonemason who was the caretaker of the area and he showed us...  more »

    Bad reception in the parking lot of the shuttle, we were yet ahead. The guide "speaker" plant us so near the entrance for 20 minutes (about 1:00 in discovery of the site) for us explain the admirable activities of the city on the heritage conservation in the face of the greed of developers (sic) the exceptional Geology (off topic of 10 minutes)... some welcome remarks on the vegetation still to report. Then necessarily a visit to run in baclant the relationship of the site with the work of Cézanne (too bad, we were there for ca!) A site beautiful and evocative for lovers of Cezanne ruined by the mediocrity of a person who got it wrong business. (notice I wrote, this one is the most negative of the 130!)

    Interesting quarries, nice walk in the beautiful nature and the little house where Cezanne used to go for painting most of his famous paintings. Need to show there on time as it's only guided tours.

Where to stay in Aix-en-Provence

To explore the old town's shops, markets, and bookstores on foot, stay at one of the city's centrally located hotels. Just a short drive from this busy central area are a selection of luxurious villas, surrounded by formal gardens and private swimming pools. Though rather expensive, these elegant mansions provide a convenient base from which to explore the cultured area surrounding the city. For a cheaper alternative, look for private inns and B&Bs on the edge of town.
