Hi, my name is Richard. I really enjoyed my first year of Aix Walking Tours , my love of this town and history is a great combination . I met lots of interesting, engaging people from all over the world and had a ton of great reviews and I was looking forward to an even better 2020 and then Covid19 . The good news is we are now back, so if you can get to Aix , I would love to see you. I have lived and worked in the UK, USA and Asia . On a year plus family trip around the world we took a lot of walking tours. Its the best way to get to know a city and I got to know what makes a good walking tour - Small groups , so you can hear and ask questions. A guide who knows the facts , but also the stories , the characters , the fun, what its like to actually live in the city. I want you to know Aix and even want to live here , or at least come back and visit again !

Aix-en-Provence: Highlights from the capital of Provence on an audio tour

Aix is a beautifully preserved city. In fact, its centre hasn’t changed much over the last 300 years, but that doesn't mean it's living in the past. On this tour, you’ll quickly see how the city’s history plays a huge part in the resurgence we’re seeing now in the fortunes of modern Aix. There are lots of elegant buildings and squares along the way, of course, and we’ll explore its 2,000-year-old story together – but there are also bustling markets, expensive clothing stores and some great cake shops. By the end of this self-guided audio tour, you’ll understand how the city’s turbulent past has shaped its present. It’s a fascinating story filled with plague, war, revolution, and fortunes made and lost. The highlights include: • How an archbishop developed an expensive real estate block • Why we remember Paul Cezanne and not Emile Zola • Aix’s very own rags to riches story • How Napoleon shaped Aix’s history And so much more!
