Narbonne attractions include a beach, a maze of Medieval streets, and the busy Hotel de Ville area with shops.
- The heart of this city, once a key port for the Roman Empire, is the dramatic Place de l'Hotel de Ville.
- Also be sure to stroll through the village's old town, where you can't miss the main attraction: Cathedrale Saint-Just. The most dominant building in this neighborhood, the 13th century church connects to the Palais des Archeveques, which has an ornately carved 130-meter keep.
- The Horreum, the only significant ancient Roman relic in the city, is an intricate underground series of hallways and tunnels which is believed to have been used for grain storage.
- Also of interest is the Musee de Telephone, with exhibits on the history of communications, including telegraphs and, of course, the telephone.
- Be sure to visit Narbonne Plage (beach), which you can reach from the train station and several points in central Narbonne through the TUN bus line. The beach area features boutiques and outdoor cafes.
- If lions, tigers and bears interest you, visit La Reserve Africain in Sigean near Narbonne. This 660-acre safari park is home to 150 species from five continents, and its self-proclaimed mission is to “breed animal species which are threatened for the future generation.” Visitors can tour the grounds by foot, which takes about two hours, or by bus, which takes an hour.
