Take a Guided Tour of Aix en Provence

Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

Last Saturday Robin and I took a guided tour of Aix en Provence with Frédéric Paul.

A Tour Guide Local with Passion for Sharing History

A rising television star and truly passionate about history, Frédéric aims to share insights into the history of his native Provence. From Toulon, he’s a local on a mission hoping to spread appreciation for the little stories that make cities come alive.

Continue reading here to learn more about Le Visible est Invisible Frédéric’s tour company based in Aix-en-Provence. The tours are available in French, English or Italian. There are several different itineraries as well as options for customised tours. What you can expect on one of these walks is for Frédéric to show you those not so hidden clues to the history behind Aix-en-Provence. After all, the visible is invisible until someone helps you to discover it.

More reading these walking tours:

Discovering Invisible Aix-en-Provence. Frédéric Paul is trilingual (French, English and Italian) he studied art history and languages in school. A series of positions in parcel logistics, business management, human resources and marketing took him from Toulon to Reunion Island and back to Provence. Frédéric tells me that it was a chance meeting, in 2011, with an architect focused on the historic preservation of Aix-en-Provence — a milestone encounter.

Aix en Provence Walking Tour Discovery Beyond the Ordinary. Frédéric Paul is the founder of Le Visible est Invisible, a company that offers guided tours in Aix en Provence and the region. What he hopes to demonstrate to clients during the walking tours is that the history of Provence is in your face, but you need to be ready to see it.

Please share this with friends and family.

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.
