Discover two Unesco sites in the South of France


Just one hour drive away from Toulouse, visit the lovely city of Albi, listed by Unesco in 2010, and the medieval city of Carcassonne, the largest fortress in Europe.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the historical center of Albi, it's one of my favourite places around Toulouse. I'll be very happy to be your guide in the Toulouse-Lautrec museum and the impressive cathedral of Albi.

In Carcassonne, you'll discover an witness of military architecture from the Middle Ages. It's perfectly preserved. By following the tour you will be travelling through time !

The below itinerary is an example of what we can do together, but it's not fixed : if you want to spend more time in Albi or Carcassonne, I'll customize the tour only for you. If you have a special wish, send me a message to help me to create the perfect trip for you.

Please note :
> the Toulouse-Lautrec museum in Albi is closed on Tuesday (Oct-March), May 1 and Nov 1.
> the city of Carcassonne is opened all year long but the Count's castle is closed on May 1.
