Narbonne apartments & Narbonne accommodation
Narbonne is a town in the southern part of France that is situated along the Mediterranean Sea shores and linked to a nearby canal and river known as Canal du Midi and Aude River respectively. The popular Spanish region Costa Brava is also only around 130 kilomoters away - nice for a day trip as well. From a distance when you approach this region you might assume that it is a modern city because of the high rise buildings that are on its heart. When you get close though, you will be surprised that these buildings that dominate the town’s skyline are some of the oldest of Narbonne’s buildings. This city enjoys a rich heritage and a fast growing economy due to the abundance of tourists. This has resulted in investors going ahead to build beautiful and well furnished Narbonne apartments and Narbonne accommodation to host the influx of visitors to the city.
Narbonne holidays - lovely accommodation
After checking into the luxury Narbonne accommodation proceed and create a list of the various places that you intend to visit. Be sure that the list is comprehensive because there so much for you to explore in Narbonne. Perhaps the first place to visit should be the Narbonne Cathedral. You will be surprised that such a small town actually has such an enormous cathedral. This cathedral is in fact the 3rd tallest in France and dates back to the rule of Emperor Constantine in the Roman times. A few streets away from the cathedral stands the only Narbonne’s remains of the Roman structure known as Horreum. It was not until 1838 when this big granary building came to be discovered. The markings on its walls are not vandalism, but ancient graffiti – who'd have thunk it?

Narbonne apartments & Narbonne villas for your holidays
On a cool morning after you enjoy your breakfast at the Narbonne apartments or your Narbonne accommodation place, consider visiting the archeological museum because it is definitely worth a trip. Here you will get to see a dazzling selection of artifacts from the Neolithic period. As you wander around you will also see broaches and arrow heads from the Bronze age too. Despite this abundance of history, Narbonne is possibly one of France's most environmentally friendly cities – another great reason to visit! Before you even think retiring to your Narbonne apartments or your private Narbonne villas, get yourself to the Archbishop’s Palace. With a height of 42 meters, you can't fail to miss it! Originially conceived as a defense tower, the Archbishop's Palace serves as a great vantage point these days, offering spectacular views of the city below.
