Welcome to Narbonne
These days, Narbonne is a charming midsize Languedoc market town, but wind the clock back two millennia and you’d be in a major Roman city – the capital of the province of Gallia Narbonensis. Exceptional sights include its cathedral and former archbishops' palace, and the town is now a popular stop-off for boaters. The picturesque Canal de la Robine runs right through the centre of elegant Narbonne and connects the Étang de Bages-Sigean with the Canal du Midi.
By 2020, Narbonne will also benefit from the opening of Narbovia, a cutting-edge museum with a focus on the city's Roman heritage.
