Occitanie only exists only since January 2016 when the regions Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées merged together. With 13 departments, it is the largest region of France so is full of diverse landscape and rich culture. You can see most of the French diverse geography without even leaving the region!  

Occitanie is a gorgeous location and I wished I had visited sooner. From the Mediterranean cities like Montpellier, Sete, to the former Roman cities as Nimes; you are bound to find something to your liking.

It’s great visiting any time of the year and most cities/towns are lucky enough to have sun all year around. The area enjoys stunning springs, sunny summers, gorgeous autumns and warmer winters.

From the breathtaking Mediterranean coastline to famous food (think cassoulet), wines, medieval castles and villages full of character, Occitanie is a place like no other.

I first arrived in Toulouse and since I was exploring the city for the first time, I took a guided tour with Toulouse Greeters. There is no better way to explore a new city than with your own personal guide! I would highly recommend checking out their website if you want to explore the city like a local. The highlights of my trip including the tour were wandering along the Canal du Midi and the Japanese Garden. I enjoyed how peaceful both places were and they were the perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon away from the sun.

My next step after Toulouse was the Meditteranean city of Montpellier where I enjoyed wandering through the old quarter of Ecusson and exploring Montpellier’s street art scene.

Last on my little tour of Occitanie was the old town of Béziers. As one of the most ancient towns in all of Europe, Béziers is the perfect destination for an off the beaten track place.

Occitanie is such an interesting region. There is always something more to see and explore like Albi, Nimes and Carcassonne.

I hope these pictures will inspire you to visit Occitanie. If you have already travelled to the region, I would love to hear from you. What was your favourite place?
