A waterway built under Henry IV, the Canal du Midi contains some remarkable works, which means it is highly interesting from a heritage point of view. A regional project, it runs for 240km, crossing 3 departments, and linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.

Chloe’s tip : «Early in the morning, amid this ocean of greenery, you can view peaceful, luxuriant nature at its most beautiful. As you drift from towpaths to flowered locks, carried along the canal by the water, you are immersed in an incredible Mediterranean ambiance».
