Thanks a lot ! That's why I say that visible is invisible. You can pass in front of so many things and don't see. I love to open the eyes with people and make discover my city.

I did a guided tour of historic Aix in English with Frédéric, and it was simply amazing. He shows you so many fascinating things you would simply walk by without noticing. A truly enriching experience.

Thank you, Frederic. We would be interested in the English speaking tour on Friday, May 15th at 10:00 am. Where is the tourist office located? We'd like to purchase 2 tickets when we arrive in Aix. Caryn

The tourist office is difficult to miss. It is located 300 av Giuseppe Verdi. It is just near the Rotonde fountain, the main spot of Aix-en-Provence, you will find it easily. See you soon, Frédéric
