Inside the Musée Granet, you'll find works by Van Dyck, Puget and, of course, Cézanne. You'll also see dozens of paintings by the museum's namesake, the French artist François Marius Granet. The building is interesting as well, as it was the former priory of the 17th-century Knights of Malta.

You'll find the museum about a five-minute walk southeast from the Cours Mirabeau. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. June through September and from noon to 6 p.m. October through May. Admission fees range from €2 to €5 (about $3 to $7 USD) and guided tours, access to specific exhibits and workshops are available for an additional fee. For more information, visit the official 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.
