Aix-en-Provence is not only a town of water and a town of art, but is also a town of history and culture. It has been a town of water since it was founded on a site rich in thermal springs by the Romans, 2200 years ago. It boasts more than 50 fountains. This town of art hosts an opera festival dedicated to Mozart. The monuments found in this town of history bear witness to all the eras since ancient times up until today. There are dozens of private town houses from the 17th and 18th centuries that you will discover while strolling the pedistrian streets. Aix-en-Provence is steeped in provençale culture with its daily markets, boutiques, shaded squares, and cafés.
