Your family’s experience in the Languedoc would not be complete without a visit to a French open-air market and covered food market. We’ll do just this in the pleasant town of Narbonne. You’ll also see the excavated Roman Road, the Via Domitia, the extensive Roman museum, and enjoy a cafe au last while blending in with the crowd. The week’s cruising highlight is the Fonserannes the seven staircase locks at Beziers. Fonserannes has eight lock chambers and nine gates, allowing the Athos to descend a remarkable 21.5 meters in a distance of just 300 meters.
