Albi is a beautiful Southern Italian like town along the Tarn river. With its famous architecture, alike Toulouse, which is only 75 kms away, its cathedral, of the times of the Cathars and its Museum Toulouse Lautrec it is a perfect start and end for a family cycling holiday.
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 colors, 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.

Restaurants and hotels in this trip are of excellent quality.

You will be cycling daily 35 km average through the friendly Valley of the Tarn.
In Albi and Millau you will stay in a BnB Hotel **.
