Aix‑en‑Provence by bike

With your Panama heat on your head and a pretty, trendy bike to wander around the little streets  or with a water-bottle on an electric bike for a more athletic outing in the natural surroundings of Provence, who knows which atmosphere Cézanne would have chosen to paint. The soul of the artist still watches over the beautiful city… so why don’t we set off to meet him by bike?

The Top 3 circuits in Aix

Aixtratour, the reference for electric bikes

Looking for a fun activity to discover Aix-en-Provence? Aixtratour is the Number 1 for electric bike guided tours in the charming town of Aix. It’s the rental service for all, as a family, with friends, as a couple and even with colleagues. Here are our 3 favourite circuits for you. Our first, the Cézanne tour, without hesitation. A cycling escapade in the footsteps of the Provencal painter with a little cultural break to discover his studio. For those who love beautiful skies and light, the Sunset Tour is ideal to finish the day on a beautiful note. A two-hour ride in the cool of evening with several viewpoints to admire a sublime southern sunset. And our latest favourite is the Grand Tour d’Aix-en-Provence, the perfect itinerary to discover the town and its different aspects. In the little streets of the old town in Aix and the art foundation with its view of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, we just love the anecdotes which rhythm the ride. And an extra: a free tasting of local products!
