Aix : the Hidden heritage in the Historic center

visite_Aix_en_Provence_1

Did you know that history of Aix en Provence is not limited to Cézanne and the good King René ? That all over the city are hiding incredible things you've probably never noticed ? You know, those things which we pass hundreds of times without more see them. Those things which one wonders what it may well be without ever going to look further.
​Today you have the opportunity to see the invisible, to visit Aix, to discover or rediscover the city with another look and go back in time during a fun and interactive ride. Come share and give free rein to your imagination. Come make your own city and share the secrets of the great history and the stories of Aix and off the beaten. A journey in time through the eras of ancient Rome to the present day to discover these unnoticed details and small stories that make the great history of Aix.

A guided tour in english for about 2 hours in the old city.

Aix off the beaten track

With the journey "in Aix the invisible is elsewhere" I'll show you that you have not yet sufficiently opened the eyes and that there are still things to discover, taking you outside city centre in this otherwise not so distant. From Roman history to the "Grand Théâtre de Provence" we will cross the eras.
How many times have you seen these things you do not see ? How many times have you passed through those things which you you are unaware that they exist ? For more than a year with "in Aix visible is invisible" I showed you need to open your eyes to see all the riches that this city contains.
This second journey in Aix is not a sequel but is complementary to the first. For a little more than 2 hours we will emerge from the old city to see that the story of Aix is not confined to this border is today the device. The journey through time looking for missing wonders is that most epic.

Les gens d'Aix


Qu'ils soient habitants ou de passages, célèbres ou inconnus, laissons la parole aux gens qui ont fait l'histoire de la ville.
Aix-en-Provence est un décor de theatre, nous avons donc décidé de laisser ses grands personnages prendre la parole et la vie. Que pourrait bien penser Caius Calvinus Sextius, le fondateur de la ville romaine s'il il la voyait aujourd'hui ? Mazarin avait-il l'accent italien ? Mirabeau avait-il du mal à parler ? Et Saint Mitre avait-il la tête sur les épaules ?
Nous n'en savons rien mais nous allons y repondre quand-même.
Une visite théâtralisée où les personnages prennent la parole...


Une visite pour rire et s'enrichir...



Durée 2h environ dans le centre ancien et alentours.

Dans les rues D'Aquae Sextiae - Aix Antique

As part of the exhibition earlier this year at the Granet Museum "antique Aix " and of 25 years anniversary of the city Archaeological Department, Frédéric PAUL has come up with a course around the Roman theme. Aix-en-Provence is the first Roman city in France.

A priori, nothing remains of the ancient yet rich past of the city. Yet on closer look, here and there the Roman presence is still there. Discover the columns, the Roman road , the baths , the villa Grassi, imagining life in Roman times in the middle of past monuments.

Frédéric PAUL will make you travel in time with a joyfull tour brighten up with pictures and movie.
