For those that enjoy visiting there is the grand Théatre de Provence, the cathedral of St Saveur and the many sites related to Cézanne, not forgetting the many international music and opera festivals . For those that want to venture further afield there is so much to see within an hours drive of Aix. There is Baux de Provence, Arles with its famous arena, the lavender fields, the vineyards of Luberon, Avignon with its papal palace. For the more sporty there are numerous hikes in the area with extensive national parks , mountain biking and white water rafting in the Gorges de Verdon.
