Experience Aix-en-Provence

Aix-en-Provence -- or "Aix" for short -- is graced with winding streets, beautiful buildings, and burbling fountains. While it may be small, Aix boasts all the modern amenities of a larger city and is bustling with an amazing ambiance and a lively, student-centered atmosphere. It's no surprise that the French voted Aix as "the most desired French town to live in," or that our CEA Aix program is consistently ranked among the top two study abroad programs in the world by Abroad 101. Explore the traditional aspects of French culture in this idyllic university town; cafés, pubs, theaters, outdoor concerts, and festivals await in sunny, charming Aix!

Walk to class along the winding streets of Aix and take a break at one of the many bistros or bakeries. Taste the cuisine Provençale at local markets, discover many international restaurants, and engage in a favorite Aixois activity, people-watching at Les Deux Garçons, Paul Cezanne and Emile Zola's favorite cafe! In the evenings, take part in Aix-en-Provence's vibrant nightlife or shop the elegant boutiques and open-air markets where French artists display their work. With CEA, you'll experience all that southern France has to offer.
