For a little more than €5 EUR (or about $7 USD), you can tour Paul Cézanne's studio. Some of this artist's most famous works were painted here, including Les Grandes Baigneuses (The Large Bathers) and La Femme à la Cafétière (The Woman with the Coffee Pot); you can even see the tin coffee pot that inspired the latter.

Describing the studio as a "must-see," one TripAdvisor user says, "A visit to Cezanne's atelier is an intimate glimpse into his final years as a painter, in which he did some of his largest and most ambitious works." Another recommends exploring the surrounding area: "A short walk up the road from the house takes you deep into a residential area where, with a bit of exploring the cul-de-sacs, you can get a fantastic view of Mont Sainte-Victoire."

You can find the studio off, where else, but Avenue Paul Cézanne. For opening times and more information, visit the website.

#1 Le Grand Marché

While in Aix-en-Provence, you must visit a provincial market. And Le Grand Marché refers to the many markets that flood the city's squares: You'll find fresh food and sweet treats in Place des Prêcheurs and Place de la Madeleine, gorgeous garments in the clothing market on the Cours Mirabeau on Tuesdays and Thursdays (it's around the Palais des Justice on Saturdays), a flea market around the Place de Verdun and a flower market at the Place de l'Hôtel de Ville.

Keep in mind that these markets are only open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (typically in the morning) and hours vary.
