Aix en Provence
I went to Aix en Provence for a half-day tour which 30 minutes away from Marseille.
The medieval city was absolutely gorgeous with lots of greenery, lively squares with cafes, water fountains and colourful architecture.
We were on a walking tour and visted the cathedral and walked the streets of this stunning town.
There were lovely shops selling lavender and sweets. The speciality to buy there are the Calissons D’Aix which are almond-shaped made from a paste of candied fruit and ground almonds with a thin layer of icing on the top.
