Fountains of Aix-en-Provence

Aix-en-Provence is known as the city of a thousand fountains thanks to a surplus of natural sprngs. There are at least 20 dating from Roman times to the 21st century. From mossy rocks to leaping dolphins and fellows making funny faces at each other, they’re worth a pause. Kids (and pigeons) adore them. This is the 18th century Fontaine d’Argent, not far from Cave D’Yves, at the intersection of Rue de la Mule Noir and Rue de la Fontaine d’Argent.

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves.

If they don't, we take turns.
