Albi: Occitan city and Cathar country
Stroll through these old districts, enjoy the shops and cafes or lie along the banks on the grass to enjoy your day.
You will easily find regional and local products such as Gaillac wines, Lautrec garlic, Toulouse violet, Monts de Lacaune charcuterie, Aubrac meat, or even the famous cassoulet.
Albi also hosts multiple festivals throughout the year . At the end of February, the Albi carnival invites you to follow the parades of floats accompanied by music performed by different groups. This carnival is of the same level as its music festival in June or the famous Pause Guitare festival in July.
Albi is easily accessible by train, but also by the A68 motorway which connects Toulouse to Rodez.
