Description

You'll start the bike tour in elegant Montpellier. This typical Mediterranean city is not far from the blue sea and its sandy beaches. The centre of Montpellier is full of medieval monuments and of those from the Renaissance and Classicism periods. Its university of medicine is the oldest in the World. This town also has one of the richest museums of France. Lovely squares and many restaurants and cafés invite you to appreciate the Mediterranean way of life. This tour then takes you on to Sommières, a nice medieval town on the Vidourle River crossed by a 2000 year old Roman bridge. A little paradise and lovely villages await you after Sommières, this region is called "Vaunage". Its inhabitants were Protestants and lead a bloody rebellion against the "not so sunny" Louis XIV from 1703 to 1705 and unfortunately paid a heavy tribute.

On the way onto Nîmes, with its numerous roman monuments, you ride through vineyards and the Mediterranean scrubland landscape called the "Garrigue". After the Roman town you will ride along the Rhône-Sète Canal through the untouched saltmarshes and inland lakes of the Camargue to the medieval walled town of Aigues-Mortes. From Aigues-Mortes, you ride along the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea back to Montpellier.
