Unexpected Aix is a walking tour of the city during which the street story-teller Jean-Pierre Cassely will use the names of streets, monuments, and plaques on buildings to describe significant and trivial moments in the life of Aix past and present.

His anecdotes are sometimes little-known, sometimes surprising, always fascinating, sometimes comical and sometimes downright wicked.

Tours only in French.
