We walked to and from this view from town which was easy and well signposted. A great view and important for the comprehensive Cezanne experience. The only jarring item - a continues (smoke bush) which would not have been in the original paintings

Honestly - I don't know why they don't advertise this place at the tourist information! I thought it is really magical, despite the fact that I am not the biggest admirer of Cezanne's work. It's some 20 Minutes walk from the downtown, it goes uphill...More

A good site to visit. The Park also has many reproductions of Cezanne's paintings. The view of Cezanne's beloved Montagne Sainte Victorie is excellent.

Worth a visit. The view is lovely and there is some interesting info about Cezanne. It is a bit slippery if you walk down though

After Cezanne's studio, walk up the hill (as he did daily) to this corner where he painted every day overlooking the city and the mountain. There are some samples of his paintings with introductions here so you can compare his paintings to the views you...More
