I lived in Aix for a school year as a foreign student, and have returned through the years since. Each time I visit the vicinity of Mont Sainte-Victoire. As a student (age 19) my roommate and I climbed part of it (but lost the path partway up), but in more recent visits we just drive to the vicinity, to stop at a spot Cezanne was known to paint, to have a meal at restaurants with spectacular views of it, and to take pictures of it.
I recommend those who travel by car to make sure to pass through the town of Le Tholonet on the road to the mountain. There is a wonderful arcade created by plain (plane?) trees culminating in a chateau now connected with municipal works that is also a site where concerts are givin during the summer Festival of Music in Aix. Don't hesitate to pull over on the side of the road to take pictures of the mountain. If you decide to hike to the top, don't leave the path!
