Top things to do in Albi, the perfect place for foodies
With its charming cobblestone streets, medieval buildings and Renaissance private mansions, Albi is definitely a charming little city to discover.
Settled in the South western part of France, this town is nicely located near Toulouse. It is just 3 hours away from the Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and Spain.
This is a land of gastronomic tradition. And when it comes to food, you may think about duck, foie gras, duck confit (“confit de canard”), cassoulet (a traditional dish with beans and sausage), cheese… But also wine!
The local wine is named Gaillac from a town nearby. Here, there is a cultural heritage of more than 2000 years of history. Several unique local grape varieties are nowhere else to be found.
Braucol, Loin de l’Oeil, white, sparkling or red… To enjoy a sip of these wines served with some cheese is a must try.
And for the sweet mouths, in this beautiful old town, many passionate artisans, such as the boulanger-pâtissier, cook yummy macarons, pastries and biscuits.
