Otherwise affectionately know as 'Little Paris', the town of Aix-en-Provence is just as sophisticated as its namesake. The Romans first set up camp in this classic little French town; nowadays, Aix greets a few tourists who make the most of the sizzling sunshine, orange trees and tranquil café culture. Aix is slap bang on the French Riviera coast. Warm weather and good French food are commonplace in this classic French town. Cézanne
