Aix-en-Provence - the charming host of the 16th IVV- Volkssport- Olympiad 2019!
The ancient capital of Provence is located in the French department of Bouches-du-Rhône in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in the south of France, just 30 km north of Marseille. It is a city of art and culture in which the mind seems to blow more freely and more easily than anywhere else. Many old palaces, art treasures in museums and churches testify to a splendid past.
A visit to Aix is not imaginable without a stroll over the Cours Mirabeau. This historic boulevard is lined with old plane trees, cafes and elegant city vaults and is one of the most popular and lively spots in the city. The noise of the cicadas mixes with the rippling of the fountains in the sunlight of Provence. At the end of this promenade we meet the huge "Rotonde-Fountain". Built in 1860, it is crowned by 3 statues that symbolize the justice (direction Cours Mirabeau), agriculture (looking to Marseille) and the fine arts (Avignon in view). Here, everybody certainly meet at the heart of the city. As the feet begin to ache in our seemingly narrow shoes, it is time to say "Au Revoir", to Aix-en-Provence, the city of Cézanne and almond confectionery.
We bring you perfectly organized and show you the country and people whose history and culture. Look forward to our travel and hiking programs around the IVV Olympiad and the capital of popular sport 2019 Aix-en-Provence!
