Undiscovered France — Albi, Carcassonne, and Toulouse

May 25, 2021 - June 2, 2021
Price starting at: $3,245

Celebrate the soul of France on a seven-night stay in Albi, a warren of half-timbered homes and cobbled lanes. During daily excursions, we’ll explore the region’s treasures, ancient villages, and glorious landmarks. Learn about Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, a beloved 19th-century painter, and enjoy a visit to the Musée Toulouse-Lautrec. Cruise along the Tarn River on a gabare, a traditional flat-bottomed boat, and encounter Montauban and its trove of pretty architecture. Lose yourself in the warmth of Toulouse, reveling in a cityscape of pink stone landmarks, a vast plaza and the glorious Saint Sernin Basilica. Embrace quaint Castres, witness the beautiful walled city of Carcassonne, and glide along the Canal du Midi, a centuries-old engineering marvel. Plus, meet the owners of a family-run dairy farm, visit a local winery, and delight in a lunch of homegrown flavors on a family farm. Relax each evening in first-class accommodations, gain insight from local experts, and enjoy an extensive meal plan including wine with dinner. No single supplement! (AHI Travel)
