Things To Do & See Whilst Working in Aix
As an English teacher for Babylangues, you will have a unique access to the many sights and cultural activities that Aix has on offer. Some things you might wish to go to or will come across in your daily life in Aix are:
Visit Paul Cézannes’ original studio that is still equipped with its original furniture. The space is on every tourist’s list, so don’t forget to book in advance – but hey, being a local, why not pop in during the week to avoid the busy crowd on weekends?
Aix Cathedral Saint-Saveur
This impressive cathedral is a national monument of France and is a mix between a baffling three architectural styles: It includes Romanesque, Gothic and Neogothic elements! It presides over the centre-ville and you are sure to come across it on your daily strolls and commutes. You can pop inside every day between 8 am and 7.30 pm – just be weary on Sunday before 12.30 as masses and services are held.
The Cours Mirabeau is one of the cities great boulevards and brings an air of Parisian chic to Aix. Bookshops and cafés invite you to enjoy yourself to people-watch on a sunny afternoon or to wander in the shade of the trees to get your daily exercise.
The impressive mountain chain is considered a landmark of the Provence region and, as you can see below, featured as Cezanne’s muse. Good old Cezanne never failed to impress us with his rebellious streak, devoting himself to a rocky mountain rather than taking a mistress like the other painters. The outcomes were quite impressive, we must admit. Jokes aside, the montagne is the perfect area for relaxed walks and for picnics, which allows you to reap all the perks of living in the countryside without actually doing so!
Of course, more works of Cezanne can be found in the Musée Granet, but there are also exhibitions featuring a vast variety of works ranging from Giacometti to sculptures to archeological gems. If you’re the tiniest bit into art or figure your stay in France is the perfect opportunity to give it a go, we highly recommend a visit!
Fancy drinking a good glass of red or white whilst glancing over historic vineyards? You can take a one day or even half-day tour starting in Aix to explore the most famous surrounding vineyards in the Provence region. They’re perfect for when your family comes to visit or even just for a fun day trip with friends.
Le Terrain des Peintres
The Field of the Painters is a brief 15 minute walk away from the atelier de Cézanne, and as you might have guessed, our favourite painter came here often during the last years of his life to paint the surrounding landscape. If you feel like escaping the bustling energy of the city for a bit, why not take in the views and take a breath of fresh air ?
Le Grand Marché
The market in the center of Aix is a true institutions and dearly beloved by the locals. You can buy fresh fruit and vegetables as well as a range of textiles and, of course, some local French wine. The market stretches from the place de Combattants along the avenue Victor Hugo (of which there is at least one in every French city it seems) to the Cours Mirabeau and the place de Verdin.
The funky looking center for architectural design is listed as a historic monument. Visitors are able to explore the world of the artist across 200 original works and be astonished by the shrill colours and symmetrical forms that reminds us of being stuck in a massive kaleidoscope. It’s definitely a very cool experience.
