Nutmeg owes an enormous thank you to friends and family for their patience in the last several months, as they endured her chronicles of how to develop a travel application.
Edible Heritage Aix en Provence the App, a new pocket travel companion, is for sale and ready to be downloaded to your mobile phone.
This App offers a savoury mix of compelling historical details and bites of Provencal tradition, food, drink and local crafts. The program is an audio-guided walking tour of Aix en Provence, allowing a visitor to view the main points of interest. Along the way, the user gains a better understanding of the notable sights and how each one relates to Aix en Provence of today.
As much as history has impacted the city so have the customs of the region. Sprinkled throughout are restaurant recommendations and boutiques offering regional products. The visitor has the option to halt their journey at any point in order to stimulate their taste buds with native bounty or to enjoy a bite of local cuisine.
