Between Albi, the pink city - with a beautiful old brick-built centre, the Toulouse-Lautrec museum and a stonebrick Cathedral - and Millau, in the center of Parc des Grands Causses, you will be walking alongside the Tarn river in a steep sided valley. Down in the valleybetween two hilly plateaux which rise up to 700m height, you'll get the feeling of being up in the mountains. The river flows swiftly to the West through the valley, also called "La Vallée de l'Amitiée, a very friendly place to stay and hike. There are some very old castles like Brousse-le-Chateau, Coupiac, St. Izaire andpicturesque villages like Ambialet, St. Rome-de-Tarn, Montjaux and Le Minier. For centuries life and local trade has centered around these places.
From Millau, a pleasant small Mediterranean alike city, also the gateway to the better known canyons of the Gorges du Tarn and a centre for activity holidays, you'll start the Tarn Valley walk under the viaduct from where you will be heading further downstream. From the second half of June the chirring sound of cicades will go all along with you as if in Provence. The old medieval villages and towns of the Gorges des Raspes du Tarn on your way will add to your feeling connected with ancient times.
