Take advantage of your stay at our Campanile hotel to visit to vineyards. Château Monfort-Lussan, for example, is the perfect spot to discover a vineyard that’s over 2,000 years old and take part in a wine tasting. A day can also be devoted to a stroll through the city center, especially along the Canal de la Robine, a Unesco World Heritage Site. You can walk or bike along its shores, or rent an electric boat to see the city from a different angle.
Start your journey with a tour of Narbonne’s vineyards and its downtown area. For history buffs, Notre Dame de Lamourgier Church today is home to the Lapidaire museum’s collections, containing 1,300 blocks of carved stone Roman funerary monuments. The Archbishop’s palace, the second-largest set of religious structures in France, is home to the city’s art and history museum. More surprisingly, the palace contains rooms that still have their original decor.
Narbonne is the hometown of the poet and singer Charles Trenet. His childhood home is open to the public and immerses visitors in the texts and songs that all French people grew up with. The tour of the charming little house is set to music and it includes the singer’s mother’s apartment and the apartment of the “Fou Chantant” (the singing madman), Trenet’s nickname. Trenet’s home is located just a few minutes from the Campanile hotel in Narbonne. Next, to delight both young and older children, there’s nothing like a kayak ride down the canal.
