  • The Museum (free), which can be complemented by the guided tour (€5 with tasting) allows to discover the history of the calisson and confectionery, the ingredients and the manufacture of calissons. The big and small will appreciate the tactile tables where they can learn about the manufacturing. Integrated into the first floor of the site brand new confectionery, the Museum offers views of manufacturing workshops. The ambition of the confectionery, described during the tour, is both to rebuild a complete ecosystem in Provence (with including the relocation of almond trees to high calissons of range) and the development of shops in France and internationally.

  • It is a free and interesting visit. We learn whence the calissons and how they are made. The visit is fast, windows directly overlook the production line and manufacture of calissons simulation workshops are offered to visitors. Finally, the shop offers calissons, biscuits and nougats varied, the prices are still high.

  • For lovers of calissons, a Museum is dedicated to them in the new temple of this sweetness of Aix-en-Provence. On Wednesday morning, enjoy a guided tour of the Museum with a bonus, a creation of calissons demonstration and tasting all just out of the oven. A delight! Thanks again Vincent for the visit. Little more for children: do your "digital" calissons!

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.
