One of the best small cities to visit in France is, without a doubt, Beziers. I simply love the way the French culture merges with the Spanish one, all the while old Roman ruins are spread throughout the city, giving it an ancient flare. Not to mention, Beziers is just a few miles away for the Mediterranean.

In the city of a thousand  fountains, Fontaine de la Rotonde is one of the most interesting. Located at the end of Cours Mirabeau, in the heart of Aix-en-Provence, this 19th century fountain has three statues on top representing Justice (towards Cours Mirabeau), Agriculture (towards the city of Marseille) and Fine Arts (towards Avignon).

France is famous for its amazing dishes, desserts in particular, and Provence are has many incredible sweets. So, a walk through the idyllic Aix-en-Provence would not be complete without snacking on delicious bonbons, madeleines or chocolate. A great dessert boutique here is La Cure Gourmande, just a stone’s throw away from Aix’s city hall. It has that old time charm the makes the entire experience even more amazing.

This was one of the first photos I took with a digital camera, way back when, during my one of my very first trips abroad. I remember I discovered this small port a few kilometers from St. Tropez, simply by accident. However it was one of the best accidents that ever happened to me because it was one of the most charming and interesting small towns that I’ve ever seen.

While I roamed the streets of Aix-en-Provence, on another hot day of August, I saw quite a few artists trying to immortalize the gorgeous surroundings. This was one of them. This amazing city has such a long and rich history with painters and artists in general, of course, even today, it’s filled with all sorts of creative people.
