Walk through the charming streets of Aix-en-Provence and see the Place d’Albertas and the fountain with its basin made by local students. With its colorful facades, this place is the perfect spot for a nice picture! Cheese! On your way, do not miss the Four Dolphins Fountain, an impressive sculpture created in 1667.

Do not miss the City Hall, the Cathedral Saint Sauveur and the typical local markets. Your walk through the old town will lead you to lovely shops, bustling squares and refreshing fountains... 

After your visit to Aix-en-Provence it's time to climb back aboard your minivan and drive in comfort along the Crests Road to Cape Canaille. From here you will admire an exceptional view over the bay of Cassis and the Guardiole mountain range.
