Béziers is one of France’s oldest towns, nestled between La Montagne Noire and the Mediterranean Sea and home to a famous rugby team. It’s Languedoc’s wine producing centre and boasts a rich cultural heritage. Tour the Saint Nazaire Cathedral, which overlooks the River Orb, cross the Old Bridge and take a boat trip along the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Book a flight to Béziers and explore its arenas, town hall, clock tower as well as the Saint-Jacques and Sainte-Madeleine Churches. You can easily reserve a hotel room in Béziers, Pierre-Paul Riquet’s home town. Situated close to the Mediterranean Sea, Béziers is a popular holiday destination. There’s the seaside resort of Cap d’Agde, with its 14 kilometres of white, sandy beaches and numerous water sports, not forgetting the town of Adge, which dates back to Ancient Greek times. Visit its ramparts and Notre Dame du Grau Cathedral, a major pilgrimage site that comes complete with its own dungeons. The Ephebe Museum is a must-see and houses one of the best collections of bronzes in France, all of Mediterranean origin.
