Happiness on the banks

Linking Toulouse to the Mediterranean, the Canal du Midi, built between 1667 and 1682, is considered the largest construction project of the 17th century. Your journey, organized in loops around four cities, will allow you to appreciate its ingenuity and to travel at your own pace. In Carcassonne, we suggest you visit the medieval city, whose fortifications extend over nearly 3 km and house the château comtal and the Saint-Nazaire basilica.

Looking for something different? Narbonne invites you to an underground labyrinth of ancient warehouses (horreum), inherited from Roman times. In Béziers, located on a majestic promontory, you will contemplate the masterpiece of the canal, the nine locks of Fonseranes. Then, in Sète, bordering the Thau Lagoon and nicknamed the little Venice of Languedoc, the Mediterranean and its sandy beaches await you. What a delight to be by the water!
