Embark on a vibrant Private Shore Excursion from Toulon Port City to Visit the charming small town of Aix en Provence

Today, we will come and pick you up directly at your ship in Toulon Cruise Port. Meet your English speaking driver/guide who will go over the itinerary and program of this private tour with you. Then board your A/C vehicle and begin to make your way to the town of Aix en Provence.

Arrive in Aix en Provence
In the morning or the afternoon, participate in a private small-group day trip from Toulon to Aix en Provence. The small town of Aix en Provence is known as the City of Water and City of Fine Arts. The number of fountains that are located in Aix is quite unusual and about 30 of them are considered to be Architectural highlights. Fontaine des Trois Ormaux, Fontaine Miollis or the amazing Fontaine Moussue – covered with moss – all date back to the 17th century. Your private guided tour of Aix en Provence historical city center will certainly include some fountains and show you how important water is to the town.

Visit the Historical City Center
During your walking tour, you will also visit the historical old town of Aix en Provence. Admire the finesse of wrought iron sculpted on the balconies of the houses that line Cours Mirabeau, Albertas square and the 17th-century town hall. Other landmarks include Saint Saveur Cloister and the nearby Cathedral.

Aix en Provence is also home to Fine Arts. One can follow the footsteps of famous painter Paul Cézanne. Born in Aix en Provence, the painter is also buried here in the Saint Peter cemetery. it is possible today to visit his Painting Studio where one can still admire furniture, equipment and tiny details that will connect you with his life.

After the visit, enjoy some free time for lunch or personal discovery (morning tour) before returning to your ship in Marseille.
