Canal du Midi
One of France’s most unusual UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Canal du Midi was once a vital economic link between the country's southern regions and the Atlantic. Today, a boat cruise on the canal is a relaxing and picturesque journey that passes under shaded plane trees lining the banks. Near Béziers, the ingenuity of the canal’s engineers is on display at the dramatic Fonserannes staircase locks, in which a series of eight chambers raises boats 21 meters (70 feet) higher.
