Narbonne apartments & Narbonne accommodation
Narbonne is a town in the southern part of France that is situated along the Mediterranean Sea 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 kilometres away and is nice for a day trip as well. Approaching this region from a distance you might assume that it is a modern city because of the high rise buildings that are in 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 accommodation to host the influx of visitors to the city.
Narbonne Holidays - Lovely Accommodation
After checking into your luxurious Narbonne accommodation, be sure to plan where you want to explore in Narbonne, as there is so much here that you could easily miss something if you aren’t sure where it is! The first place to visit should be the Narbonne Cathedral and similarly to Ulm in Germany, you will be surprised that such a small town actually has such an enormous cathedral, being the 3rd tallest in France and dating 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. Interestingly it was not until 1838 when this big granary building was discovered and the markings on the walls are not vandalism, but in fact ancient graffiti.
On a cool morning after you have enjoyed breakfast in your apartment or villa, consider visiting the archaeological museum, where you will get to see a dazzling selection of artefacts from the Neolithic period. As you wander around you will also see brooches 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 of retiring to your apartment or private villa in Narbonnes, visit the Archbishop's Palace. Standing 42 meters high, you can't fail to miss it! Originally conceived as a defence tower, the Archbishop's Palace serves as a great vantage point these days, offering spectacular views of the city below. Narbonne is not the only fascinating city in this region. Why not spend a day in Beziers, Nimes or Montpellier as well?
