Take a tour of Canal du Midi in Toulouse, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. Flowing for 150 miles through the south of France is the breathtakingly serene Canal du Midi. The origin of the name comes from an Occitan phrase that means the "canal of the two seas." This is because the Canal du Midi joins with the Canal de Garonne to connect the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. The canal flows through the city of Toulouse and has a series of 91 locks. There are many paths along its bank that allow walkers and bikers to enjoy the canal along with boaters. The canal is lined with trees for much of its length, making it an incredibly scenic place to spend a day, or several.
