Ce vei face

We will be walking in the old town of Aix, most of which has not changed for over 400 years. In our 2 hours together we will travel from Roman times to the present, Aix has a colourful history.
We will also see and stop at some of my favourite markets , bars and ice cream shops ! We will start at the Rotonde, the symbol of our city .Stroll the famous Cours Mirabeau boulevard and discover the stories behind the grand doors.Next we enter the Mazarin Quarter , it remains an elegant place to live, beautiful mansions and still the site of the school where Cezanne and Zola became life long friends . Wind up through the lanes of the old medieval city, past fancy shops, daily food and flower markets to the Cathedral dating from the 5th Century finishing at the still standing medieval town walls.
Other things to note
Children Under 13 Free !
Parking in Aix on the street is possible but the Car Parks are not expensive and all are within 10 minutes walk of wherever you want to go. I wouldn't stress looking too hard for a spot. Nearest Car Park to our meet is La Rotonde , 1 min walk .

Hi , I'm Richard . lts May 2021 and we are back and making up for lost time. Bars and Terraces are busy and I am strolling through town with new faces again, great . I am fully vaxxed up , remembered my dates and found some new stories. I have lived and worked in the UK, USA, Asia before settling in Aix. On a year long trip around the world, we took a lot of walking tours, its the best way to get to know a city. The best tours were small groups ,the guide knew the history, but also the stories, the characters not just the dates,
You will hear the stories of Aix, noble and not so noble , at the end I want you to want to live here , or at least visit again.

Unde vei fi

We will be taking a stroll through the old town of Aix. The medieval winding streets and the beautiful grand townhouses of Aix's golden age in the Seventeenth Century. I will tell you the stories and details which are hard to find, especially if you don't speak French. The stories that have made Aix what it is.

A great way to get to know Aix! Richard has clearly done a lot of research on his adopted home, and I learned everything I needed to feel like I understood the city and its development. Highly recommend this tour.

This was an incredibly great tour! I love history and it can be made much better when it is relevant to current times. The story of Aix is a happy story and I am better for knowing it’s context and place in the world! Richard was a super knowledgeable and personable host! Especially loved the great summation of the French Revolution. 10/10

Richard is an engaging story teller. As we walked through Aix we listened to the history of this elegant town through stories. We learned about the full circle of Aix from ancient time to present. Richard’s story telling made us feel like we where there. He also showed us great shops for traditional foods, market places and a couple of restaurants we will enjoy during our stay in Aix. Don’t hesitate to takes this tour when planning you visit to Aix. Be sure do it early in your stay so you understand this beautiful city and are able to enjoy it more.
