In the morning our group does a walking tour of Aix-En-Provence, ending up near the Cours Mirabeau. We pass historic buildings and monuments, flower markets and flea markets. Afterwards we go our separate ways until lunch at a local cafe, Chez Laurette, near the town hall. In different parts of the old town the pavement is marked with plaques or studs indicating Cezanne's footsteps. A free map indicates 36 places in Aix-En-Provence associated with this famous artist.

Dinner with the group in La Crep' Sautiere.
*We usually travel quite frugally, picking up snacks from local markets and very occasionally having a meal in a restaurant. This trip gave me a new admiration for French cooking.
