See the Sights in Beziers
The Saint-Nazaire Cathedral is a 12th century structure and one has to climb a number of stairs to reach the cathedral. The climb is worth it once the summit is reached, offering a breath-taking panoramic view of the city below. There is also an old cemetery in the church grounds that dates back to the 1800s. Taking a trip to a graveyard may seem like an eerie way to spend your vacation in Beziers, but this sort of excursion is gaining in popularity. Give it a try if you want to try something completely different! The other history that is associated with Beziers is not such a tranquil one, bull fighting, which has been prevalent in Beziers for many decades. La Féria de Béziers is held over 4 days in mid-August every year and is the best opportunity to experience this controversial tradition. However, since this is a busy season, finding accommodation in Beziers could be tricky, so be sure to book your Beziers apartment or villa well in advance. Holidays in Beziers in Languedoc-Roussillon are as popular as holidays in Camargue or Côte d'Azur, thanks to the lovely coast. Carcassone and Toulouse in the Midi-Pyrenées region are also not too far away, as well as fascinating cities like Narbonne, or Avignon in Provence.
Enjoy a Fun-Filled Holiday
As well as the local traditions and tourist attractions, there is much on offer in Beziers for history fans. This charming French town has a rich past which extends deep into the heart of the Roman era, in 36 BC. Back then, Beziers served as an important commercial route and has continued to do so ever since. Even now, the town continues to be of considerable importance for its varied produce. Most famous though, is its wine. Back in the Roman era, the rich reds and crisp whites were served in amphorae - a type of ceramic bottle prolific throughout ancient times. The locals boast that the amphorae were invented here, a fact that is oft disputed by historians, but one which makes for humorous local banter and unique souvenirs for friends and families. Treat yourself to a bottle (or an amphora) of Beziers' most famous export and enjoy it surrounded by your loved ones on the balcony of your Beziers villa to make the most of this full-bodied treat.
