Would you like to visit Aix-en-Provence? Did you know that our city lies at the centre of a region dotted with picturesque villages and a landscape formed by the Sainte-Victoire Mountain, the Durance Valley, the mountain ranges of Touloubre, Côtes and Trévaresse, and the Upper Valley of the Arc?
355,000 people live here in this large region which covers 1,300 km2 and is also a major economic, cultural and university centre in France.
The Aix Region has been inhabited since the Stone Age and Aix-en-Provence itself dates back 2000 years: we have a lot of history behind us. Over the millennia, we have acquired a certain way of life – our climate which is mild whatever the season, our friendly nature and warm welcome, and our genuine art of taking our time and filling it with special moments.
