You will see a splendid and ever changing scenery with hilly mountains, canyons, plateaus, villages and small towns.
 
Albi, the city of the famous painter of Moulin Rouge and Aristide Bruant, Toulouse Lautrec, is moreover worth your visit because of its cathedral and its nice old town centre.
 

You will be starting in Albi. Via the spectacular Gorges de la Dourbie and a Templars village you'll pass the Valley of the Sorgues in the Pays de Roquefort and St. Affrique and come back in Albi.
