Before going to Provence, I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the cute city that exists in the tiny cobblestone streets and alleys that form Aix En Provence. It is filled with a mix of boutiques, recognizable stores, food shops and restaurants that are housed
in rich architectural buildings which make every space feel unique.
Without a doubt, my favorite part was the food. The farmer’s market is worth the trip alone, if you happen to be anywhere in the French Riviera. The sundried tomato pesto tasted as if it had just been plucked from the sun and the incredible scent of fresh bread that wafts through the town,
is unlike anything I have ever experienced before.
Since the lavender fields of Provence were no longer in bloom, we took a detour on our way back to Monaco. We passed through the idyllic towns of Bonnieux and Rousillon,
passing endless sunflower fields and breathtaking sights along the way.
