You should start by visiting University Square and Saint Sauveur Cathedral facing it, founded in the 4th century. Built on the forum square, this church shows all the styles of art history. A little further on are the magnificent Town Hall and the Clock Tower with its splendid astronomical clock. Then continue until you reach Cours Mirabeau, an elegant avenue lined with plane trees and Café fronts. This avenue delimits the aristocratic part of the town: the Mazarin quarter (17th – 18th centuries) where everything is luxurious and beautiful: flamboyant mansions with enormous grounds behind high walls and finely chiselled statues on the pediments of the buildings.
Take time to stroll around the pedestrian streets, taste the famous Calisson pastry and relax on the shaded café terraces.
