Чем вы займетесь

We'll meet up at the bottom of the Cours Mirabeau outside the Apple Store. Together we will explore the different neigbourhoods of Aix en Provence, focusing on buildings and landmarks which help tell the history of the city from Roman times to the present day.

Our first stop will be the Cours Mirabeau: the year round heart of Aix en Provence, the Cours is shady in the summer, a sun trap in the winter, the epitomy of café society at its southern best. We will visit the cafe where Emile Zola and Paul Cezanne used to meet and trace the artistic and literary history of the city with reference to their lives.
Next we will enter the Quartier Mazarin to the south of the Cours Mirabeau. The quarter is characterized by numerous imposing town houses (Hôtel Particulier) built in the 17th and 18th century by the nobility. The neighborhood is now a mix of historic sites, museums, apartments, offices, and the occasional restaurant and shop. We will stop outside the impressive Hotel Caumont to get an impression of the opulent lives of the nobility.
Finally we will tour Aix old town (La vieille ville): squares, fountains, narrow streets, eclectic shops, plentiful cafés and restaurants, it’s simply a joy to wander around. a maze of small streets filled with shops and plentiful restaurants. We will visit the daily flower and food market to conclude the tour.

15 years ago Jamie Ivey was working as a lawyer in London when he came up with the idea for an extra-ordinary book – Extremely Pale Rosé, The Hunt for the Palest Rosé in France. A wine loving literary agent thought the idea had longer legs than a vintage burgundy. Jamie and his wife quit their jobs and headed into the unknown. The subsequent book went on to win the Gourmand Award Book of the Year on French wine and to be published worldwide including, American, Australian, Chinese, Polish, and Dutch editions. Peter Mayle, the Author of a Year in Provence kindly commented “At last a man who takes his rosé seriously enough to write a delightful book about it.” After Extremely Pale Rosé Jamie went on to write two more books on pink wine, one on truffles and a Guide Book on Provence, including a major section on Aix en Provence.

Где вы побываете

Stops include: the vibrant daily food market in Place Richelme; a pause in the shade next to one of Aix's fountains (although these days its best to ignore the advice of the 18th century Scottish poet Tobias Smollett that the spa water “may be drunk….to the quantity of three or three or four pints at a time)"; the Cathedrale Saint Sauveur and Patisserie Bechard for some Calissons.
