City of a Thousand Fountains
Aix-en-Provence is a small, classically Provençal town, famous for being home to Cézanne. A new TGV high-speed train station that brings vacationers from the north has turned the city into a shopping town with a wide variety and representation considering its small size. Aix's Mediterranean geography creates a warm climate; with more than 300 sunny days per year, it's great for an outdoor holiday. Three universities and several French-language schools for international students produce a very strong student presence. Founded in 123 BCE by the Roman consul Sextius Calvinus, Aix-en-Provence is a city in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of the Bouches-du-Rhônes department situated on a plateau overlooking the Arc River. The city slopes gently from north to south, allowing you to see the limestone mountain range, the Montagne Sainte-Victoire to the east. Bicycle rental is available through V'Hello, which offers you free bicycles for trips under a half-hour and affordable hourly and daily rentals. You can explore many of the ancient roads radiating out from Aix throughout the surrounding countryside, with names in both Provençal and French.
