Even if you are not an art fan this is a unique experience. Music and art are beautifully combined to give you an extraordinarily experience. The place is cool, which is nice after a hot day in Le Baux de Provence. not to be missed.

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.

What a great opportunity to get out of the city, into the countryside, and see what inspired Cézanne. The tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable. The landscape was fantastic!

Cezanne would come up the quarries to paint and even lived in the quarries at one point. The quarries is now a park which you can visit. We went in September 2015 and at the time tours were only offered in French but the Aix...More

This visit follows the pathways and actual scenes of many of Cézanne's paintings. You will immediately recognise the famous yellow ochre stone colours, the greens and the blues. For a tour, you need to reserve your place at the Tourist Office, then take a no.6...More
