Béziers

 
More than 2700 Years Old (pronounced Bayz-Ee-Ay)
Béziers is just off the A9 between Montpellier & Narbonne. This City is more than 2700 years old (700 BC). This town is located on the Orb River, just off the coast.
Crossing above the Orb, is the Canal du Midi. This canal links from the Mediterranean to the Garonne Lateral Canal in Toulouse, where that continues to the Atlantic.
Béziers is only 15 minutes to the beaches, les Plages. In Béziers you will find plenty of culture with the Theater, the Friday street market, Bull Arena, & more.
This makes for a wonderful place to walk on a beautiful day.
