along our drive from arles to cassis, france in provence we took a pit stop in aix-en-provence. the day we stopped we knew there was going to be a little antique and craft market as well as a food market. so we were so excited to stop for a couple of hours and see the colorful spices, olives and tapenades. we bought a lot of food for the rest of the car ride and basically ate our way to cassis.
aix-en-provence is known for being a university town with many teaching and research institutes. loved the young vibe from all the students. aix-en-provence is also the birthplace of paul cezanne where he lived and painted.
