About 75 minutes from Le Phénix.  The old “La Cité” is a medieval walled city that had been largely renovated and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So colossally fortified and turreted it looks like something from Walt Disney.  There is the new part of the city with the good shops, restaurants, markets and of course the Canal du Midi where you can see the canal  boats rise and fall on the locks.
