The Canal Du Midi was build by Paul Riquet, who was born in Beziers. It runs from Toulouse to Sete and dates from the 1600's. It is a Unesco world heritage site.
The Canal de Midi is a UNESCO World Heritage site. A nice day trip could consist of exploring Beziers and the Cathedral, then making your way down to Le Canal de Midi to check out the Steps. Grab some lunch or pack a picnic, then hit a beach for a snooze and swim.
Built 100 years before the canal system in England to bypass "the pirates at Gibraltar", it is a UNESCO world heritage site. The staircase of 9 locks is a world heritage site and cruises are available to experience the locks. The canal is normally closed for repair between November and March

“This restaurant could be in a Bond film ! It's amazing for the location - ancient church overlooking lake and mountains, the terrace and restaurant are beautiful and the food is sublime. It won't be long before they have a Michelin star. We recommend booking for a special treat a tasting menu. ”
