Spend a day wandering through the winding, brick-lined streets of the episcopal city of Albi. This city in the south of France, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dates back to 3000 BC. See the Berbie Palace, St Cecile Cathedral, and more.
What to Expect
Take a tour to one of the most emblematic cities of southern France, Albi, an episcopal city on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. In Albi, red bricks adorn the outsides of many buildings, giving its private mansions and winding medieval streets a special warm glow. Spend a day wandering through this ancient town and allow your private guide to point out sites of importance.
Discover St Cécile Cathedral in the center of the city, Albi’s breathtaking Gothic cathedral, considered the most remarkable monumental symbol of the city. You will see first-hand the cathedral's trademark Southern Gothic style, and the brick facade that earned it the recognition of being the largest brick cathedral in the world.
Step past the cathedral to the adjoining Berbie Palace, originally built as a military fortress. Take in the view from the terrace, overlooking the exquisite gardens and the Tarn river.
You will also have the opportunity to visit the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, an homage to Albi-born artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Here, you can peruse the largest collection of the artist's works before your 9-hour tour comes to a close.
