Cézanne tours in Provence

Has anyone done a day tour in Provence of Cézanne sites that they would recommend?

I'm considering this one, but it will depend on others signing up too:

No need to tell me I can do this myself--I am aware of that possibility.

I don't know but I love his work and would love to hear how your tour went (trip report) if you do go.

Bringing this up again in hopes of some feedback.
I'll be in Aix for most of 2 days in October.

Hi elberko, DH and I based in Aix and visited Cezanne's Atelier and walked up to the spot where he painted that mountain.

Here's my TR: Trip Report: A Provence Sandwich

Amazingly, this trip was 10 years ago so do double-check any specifics of interest. We got a good deal on a non-stop to Paris so sandwiched the trip to Provence. We had 2 great van tours to the Luberon, and Cassis.

UPDATE
None of the tours worked out, so eventually I purchased tickets here:
Individual - Aix-en-Provence, ville de Cezanne

I wouldn't bother with an english tour of the Atelier unless you know nothing about Cézanne. I loved seeing it, but easily done on you own without commentary.


Cézanne Atelier

Do go fruther up the road to see a familiar view.


I highly recommend making a required reservation to see the quarry. We took so many photos there. Interesting and gorgeous.

There are quite a few Cézanne sites in Aix itself. The tourist office has a map with locations, and there are markers all over the city.

Glad you found a tour, elberko. Thanks for the super shots.

If memory serves, Cezanne's atelier was slated for the wrecking ball but was saved intact. People familiar with his works would recognize props he used in various works.
