tour aix-en-provenceWhen in Provence, do tour Aix-en-Provence.  My top tip for visiting this elegant and historically rich city is to decide before you go how you want to see it.  If you go without choosing your focus you may be disappointed.  The city has a cosmopolitan flair and you tend to hear a lot of English from many tourists as well as international students.  It’s one of Provence’s larger cities and you can get lost in the common city atmosphere and not see the hidden treasures.

Cavaillon, Provence history walk

Cavaillon history walk – hidden treasures in Provence

 

Cavaillon

Yesterday morning, while walking the ancient Roman road near my house in Cavaillon I stumbled upon more than ancient ruins. Not just one, not just two but a handful of lavender plants here and there. Surrounded by pine trees, thyme and limestone blocks from the Roman quarry I couldn’t help to marvel at this hidden lavender holding on to its fading purple flowers as if to give the curious wanderer one more treasure before winter arrives.

On my hike, that I have often done but never guided by Annie Gaudin, historian at the Cavaillon Heritage Museum, I put together the pieces of my puzzle.

Wine photography is just one of the artistic elements to photograph while traveling in the South of France.  Ancient doors, rustic shutters, wild flowers and colourful facades keep the eye in continual movement to capture the glory.   Could there be something better to capture than this?  What about a story?
