My mother moved to Aix en Provence after I left home, back in 1980. I never lived in Provence, but I have visited regularly over the years.
Although I am not a tourist when I visit Provence, I took some photos in the fall of 2008 to build this page, which in no way claims to be complete or even comprehensive. These are just a few scattered impressions.
What makes Provence so special is the uninterrupted chain of high civilization from the Greco-Roman era to our times. Be it in the fields of technology, arts, or just refined living, Provence is always at or near the top.
I was with my teenage son on this trip, and he must have come home thinking "Provence is chilly and gray, but at least there are no tourists there."
