Bordeaux - Toulouse

From Bordeaux - Toulouse (or in reverse)

You’ll follow the Garonne canal, the extension of the Canal du Midi that connects Toulouse to the Mediteranean Sea. This sention is called the “Canal des Deux Mers” (the canal of the two seas), that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediteranean Sea: a great itinerary between vineyards and medieval villages, along the Garonne. You will gently cross beautiful towns and cultural sites like Moissac… and don’t forget the gastronomy, inescapable in this region
