  • A little higher up the atelier Cézanne, on the deck of a residential district, you can enjoy a wonderful view on Sainte-Victoire that Cezanne painted countless times in his life, maybe even at that specific point. Unforgettable place.

  • With a single city bus number 5, you get out of the square and reaches the Roof of the Rotonde painters and you can enjoy the most beautiful view that inspired the famous painters of Aix.

  • Here we discover the place where Cézanne to painted the Sainte Victoire mountain. There are pictures of the paintings he painted there. With a nice view on the Sainte Victoire mountain.

  • Go early morning or later at night since the walk it's long and the abrupt hill doesn't help much, the sight it's blocked by trees and a house built in front of the land so unless you are a really big fan of cezanne not worth the hike
  • A nice hike from the city—bring a picnic—to a lookout where Cézanne painted Mt. Sainte-Victoire. There are great views from the top and signs showing what he painted here.
  • Amazing views, quiet and peaceful garden.
  • A little hard to find. Look for a brown sign ( next to Maison de retraite Paul Cezanne) which points to some stone stairs. The park is overgrown with weeds at the start of the stairs but gets better as you reach the top with beautiful flowers and examples of Cezannes work. Enjoy!
  • Cezanne's motion along the trail is a lovely place, so peace. Cezanne. Atelier at the entrance was a little bit difficult to find one good enough walking.

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.
