Meet me to explore the provençal market; a feast for all the senses that is a must for any trip to Aix-en-Provence. Soak up it's vibrancy, luminosity and ambiance. It's a typical provençal market offering a mouth watering selection of fruits, vegetables, and goodies from the South such as olives, tapenade and lavender honey. We will then go off the beaten track where I will guide you around the local artisans where we will taste regional products including patisseries, cheeses and local wine. We'll wander the narrow streets of the historical center and you'll discover charming town squares and romantic fountains. We'll savor the local delicacy; Calisson - a product originating from Aix itself! To top off the experience we'll finish with an aperitif next to a fountain with a delicious mezze* and local wine. *Sunday aperitif will be a selection of cheeses and rosé wine
