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.
