An awe-inspiring day in Narbonne

 

Narbonne.

One of the many places where everyone desires to visit. But why?

Besides dating back to Ancient Rome, Narbonne is famous for its beaches, tourist attractions, and its gorgeous dry weather.

If you are planning on going here, which I strongly suggest you do, there are beautiful hotels such as the Brit Hotel Plaissance. It offers great rooms with a terrace view with seating, Wi-Fi, and on top of that, it’s surrounded by great shops, restaurants, and attractions.

Anyways, I went from La Redorte (where I was staying) to Narbonne which is a total of approximately 32 kilometers, so a 34-40 minute drive, which surprisingly didn’t take that long. When I arrived there, it was time to explore and eat because I was famished.

By the way, Narbonne has fantastic restaurants and cafes! And if you love shopping, there are great boutiques offering an abundance of different things.

After exploring the area a bit, I decided to go for a walk in a peaceful neighborhood away from everybody to take some air. As I was walking, I saw many old houses, probably over fifty years old or so, an old cathedral and a beautiful garden.

Now, this was the outside of the cathedral. I, unfortunately, did not have the chance to go inside because it was closed but I did, however, appreciate the architecture and the cobblestone streets leading towards the entrance. I just find it astonishing how they used to build buildings, streets…And yet still to this day, it remains rather intact, unlike our buildings today.

After my peaceful walk, I decided to go back and eat at this Italian restaurant. I naturallysat outside on the terrace to appreciate the view and the weather. I ordered homemade seafood pasta with a small platter of cheese, meat, and baguette which was delicious.

After my long and exciting day to Narbonne, I decided to head back home to La Redorte, when I arrived, I was exhausted, so I went up to my room and fell on my bed and slept, dreaming of my exciting day and what to do on the next day.
