Narbonne is connected to two motorways and several roads, and has a train station and a river. There are also 2 major airports (in Béziers and Carcassonne) not too far away. It is therefore very easy to reach the city. Once inside, you can get around via the network of buses that will take you all around the city. And of course, through the ancient parts of the city you can, and must in some cases, get around on foot.
Since antiquity, Narbonne has paid particular attention to the production of wine. The history of Narbonnais vineyards has always been associated with quality. Another high point of the city’s gastronomy is its honey, which has also been produced since the Roman era and is infused with rosemary, thyme, lavender, citrus or various other Mediterranean plants. Also try the region’s olives, which are elongated and shaped like rugby balls.
The Trenet Festival has been held each year since 2008 and is focused on the French song. Every year it attracts around 25,000 people. There is also a great street art festival.
Narbonne was originally named Narbo Martius by the Romans, who founded it.
