Listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the Canal du Midi was built by Pierre-Paul Riquet in the 17th century and is an amazing feat of engineering. Linking the Atlantic with the Mediterranean, it takes you on a wonderful journey through France’s prime wine producing region. Glide by spectacular arched bridges and ancient aqueducts enjoying the wonderful weather found in the south of France. Wind your way under the dappled shade of the plane trees, passing through beautiful oval-shaped locks. Europe's largest and best preserved medieval fortress is at Carcassonne. Its medieval towers and walled city, a romantic World Heritage site, can be explored from the convenient town centre canal basin. Float through the world’s oldest canal tunnel at Malpas. A cruise along the waterways of southern France is a perfect holiday choice for experienced and first-time cruisers alike.
