Canal du Midi Languedoc

image Canal du Midi Languedoc is France’s longest waterway used for transportation.  

Throughout the 1700’s before the advent of the railway in the early 1800’s, waterways were the chief means for transportation of people and light freight in packet or long boats drawn along inland waterways by horses  on towpaths in England and France.  

Here, the towpath is on the right side of the waterway in this photograph.  This canal is still in use for visitors to France desiring a slow means of travel through France’s picturesque countryside.
