Our textbook's Roman-Photo takes place in Aix-en-provence in southern France. Check out some of the photos of this beautiful city in the slideshow above. As a traveler in Aix, many people want to check out Paul Cézanne's studio. He is a famous artist who lived here. If you were planning a trip there for next week's fall break, what kind of temperatures (in Celsius) and general weather conditions (en français) could you expect? I will award cinq tickets for a response to this question. You can start searching by clicking here -- www.aixenprovencetourism.com.
