Albi, UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
On the banks of the Tarn river in south-west France, the old city of Albi reflects the culmination of a medieval architectural and urban ensemble. Today the Old Bridge (Pont-Vieux), the Saint-Salvi quarter and its church are testimony to its initial development (10th -11th centuries). Following the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathar heretics (13th century) it became a powerful episcopal city. Built in a unique southern French Gothic style from local brick in characteristic red and orange colours, the lofty fortified Cathedral (late 13th century) dominates the city, demonstrating the power regained by the Roman Catholic clergy. Alongside the Cathedral is the vast bishop’s Palais de la Berbie, overlooking the river and surrounded by residential quarters that date back to the Middle Ages. The Episcopal City of Albi forms a coherent and homogeneous ensemble of monuments and quarters that has remained largely unchanged over the centuries.


Winding river valleys, empty roads with just the occasional tractor. Gorgeous Gaillac wines,  the culture and old city of Albi, with its museums and art galleries and its markets. Albi is the perfect start of a  holiday. Rolling countryside, with half-timbered houses and the walled 'bastides' that go back to the time of the Plantagenet Kings, will be the secenery in the first part of this trip in the Tarn province. Easy to escape city stress meandering back roads and not see a soul for hours. Najac
After a easy hilly start in Tarn department you come in Aveyron and the Gorges and Causses. Past Millau and its beautiful viaduct you'll get into the canyons and the Gorges du Tarn. Through the Pays de Roquefort and Templars cities (10-12th century) you'll leave the times of crusaders through the Larzac and its moonlike landscapes only haunted by shepherds and their sheep preparing your Roquefort dish, the probable end of many a dinner. Through Tarn valley you'll come back in Albi.


Restaurants and hotels are all of excellent quality.
Most
dinners are included except in Albi,  where you will stay in a B&B hotel on first and last day.
