The beautiful region of Languedoc Roussillon in the South of France has given way to the new region of Occitanie which has taken over the former Midi-Pyrénées region. It is made up of five departments: Hérault, Aude, Lozère, Pyrénées-Orientales and Gard. Bordering Spain and the Principality of Andorra on its Pyrenean border and rising to the Cevennes, Languedoc-Roussillon offers an incredible cultural and natural diversity.

Unmissable places in Languedoc-Roussillon
Nîmes the Roman city
The city has a unique heritage from the time when the Romans lived there with first of all the great amphitheater and its astonishingly well preserved arenas whose construction dates back to the first century AD. The capital of the Gard region contains many other treasures and it is a delight to walk around. To feel all the energy of the city, go to the Halles de Nîmes, a place of frenzy where colors and flavors make a tasty mix.
Stevenson’s path in the Cevennes
The great path of the GR70 is not a legend. It is indeed the great path that the Scottish novelist Robert Louis Stevenson took in 1878. Eager for adventure and inspiration, he left accompanied by a donkey on the paths that go from the Cevennes to the doors of the Massif Central. You will be immersed in the heart of a wild and green nature. The total route is 220 km, but there are several sections for all levels of walkers.
The Vermeille Coast with its sparkling colors
Going down from Perpignan to the Spanish border, you will be subjugated by the vermeil coast which is also called the coast of Roussillon. There are a thousand and one treasures that follow one another along the sea. It all starts in the charming village of Collioure with its charming colored houses. Here, the pictorial movement of fauvism was born with Henri Matisse as the first. All along the cobbled streets of the town, you will discover reproductions of their works. As you go up to Fort Saint-Elme, you will have access to the coastal path and will perhaps continue your route towards the charming small seaside resort of Port-Vendres and then Banyuls-sur-Mer with all along a succession of creeks and beaches.
