60,000 trees were planted in many places along the beautiful Canal du Midi route, which runs from Toulouse all the way down to the Mediterranean Sea. They shade the towpaths and little streets too, which lead you to countless cultural monuments: from cathedrals and palaces to Roman and medieval buildings.
The wealth of culture on the Canal du Midi includes delightful culinary treasures. In this region, the vineyards produce excellent wine, and it is the home to tantalising cuisine. Enjoying life’s pleasures has a long tradition here.
