With its ochre-tinted architecture, blue skies and sparkling river, it is easy to see why so why more than 800,000 people visit Albi every year. The area around the cathedral was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010 because of its two beautiful medieval fortresses and lovely medieval districts, which incorporate half-timber houses, quaint narrow streets, an elaborate church and a scenic bridge.

Albi started life in the Bronze era, 300-600 BC, before being conquered by the Romans. It grew rich in 1040 as a result of thriving commercial and exchange industries but saw many Cathers massacred in 1208 for following their own version of Catholicism. Nowadays it is more peaceful and, with a busy market, a selection of museums, immaculate gardens and a variety of quality restaurants, it is an idyllic destination. Albi is located in the Midi-Pyrénées region and, as such, enjoys mild winters and pleasant summers

A two-day break
It will only take two days for you to fall in love with Albi. On your first day be sure to visit what is known as the Episcopal city. This is the reason Albi has been named a UNESCO Heritage Site. The historic architecture covers 63 hectares and is recognisable by its attractive red brick. The Gothic Sainte Cécile Cathedral with its fleeting bell tower and ornate statues is one of the best of these. Take a stroll down to the Old Bridge, which is particular magical at night.

A week-long stay
With a whole week you will have time to discover most of what Albi has to offer. The Palais de la Berbie, which features immaculate gardens and fairytale towers, will be a hit with nature-lovers and culture vultures alike. It houses the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, which is one of the biggest collection of Toulouse's art in France with more than 1000 pieces of art, including his famous posters. The castle itself forms part of the city's fortress and has thick walls and several towers. After a busy day discovering Albi's treasures, the Hotel Premiere Classe Albi is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a meal.

A family holiday

The whole family will enjoy a day at Espace Nautique Atlantis, an outdoor waterpark with swirly slides, palm trees and a variety of outdoor activities, including a bouncy castle, volleyball and badminton.

Transport
Albi
can be reached via the A71 and A75 from Paris , the A62 and D999 from Bordeaux, and the A64 then A68 from Biarritz. The nearest airport is Aeroport Albi Le Sequestre. There are direct trains available from Paris and Toulouse and regular bus and coach links within the city to help you get around during your visit. Alternatively, car hire and taxi services are available.

Gastronomy
The food in Albi is as regal as the surroundings and, as with many places in the south-west of France, the cuisine is dominated by goose and duck. However, in addition to poultry, local specialities include Repountsous, (wild asparagus), and be sure to try out some locally-produced wine to accompany your meal. Le Couvert des Halles serves regional and traditional cuisine in a modern environment.

Events
The Albi Festival of Music is held every year from mid-July to early August. Highlights include special concerts from choral groups, chamber orchestras and recitals by famous pianists. Events take place at several venues including the Sainte Cécile Cathedral, The Berbie Palace and Madeleine Church.

Interesting fact
The barbaric burning at the stake of Cathers, who practicsd their own version of Christianity, as ordered by the King of France and the Pope in 1208, left the Albi population so depleted that the French crown had to take charge of it.
