Crossroads of the South
The Mediterranean city of Narbonne links to the nearby Canal du Midi and the Aude River by the Canal de la Robine, which runs through the center of town. The town's original name is very ancient; the earliest known record of its original name is by the Greek Hecataeus of Miletus in the 5th century BCE. Once a prosperous port and a major city in Roman times, it is now located about 15 km (9.3 mi) from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. There's a distinctly old feel to the city, with archaeological interest, such as the Roman Horreum, a former grain warehouse built underground as a cryptoporticus semi-subterranean gallery. The historical canal system gained competition from the expanding rail network, but kept some importance due to the flourishing wine trade. You can rent a boat, or charter an operator to take you out on the waters. Narbonne is in Aude.
