Looking for Cezanne in Aix en Provence

May 19, 2014



After our day in Cassis we were looking forward to seeing the Musée Granet where there is an exhibition of the paintings of Cezanne and Matisse. Maybe if we had consulted the web we would have found that it was shut on Monday's together with most other things (which you would be well aware of if you have been following our French travel musings). Not to worry so we decided we could visit the museum before we left on the long journey back to Mazamet on the following day. We got up reasonably early to fit in all of the chores that need to be completed when preparing a day of travel and have the mandatory coffee and croissant. Then we walked to the Musée Granet just a few steps from our apartment. Guess what, it didn't open until midday which was too late for us to leave Aix and still get home at a reasonable time.

Quel dommage! We'll need to come back sometime.

Plan 'B' was a day walking around the city stopping off at the Musée des Tapisseries, Cathédrale Saint-Sauveur d'Aix-en-Provence and the Pavillon de Vendôme. With the weather closing in and not knowing whether to rain or not we were a little under whelmed by our day in Aix.
