The Canal du Midi - A Cruiser’s Guide

1 quantity in London Store
The Canal du Midi: A Cruiser’s Guide from Adlard Coles Nautical covers the canal from Toulouse to the Mediterranean plus the connecting route to the Rhône at Arles or Beaucaire along the Canal du Rhône à Séte. The route from the Gironde at Bordeaux along the Garonne, often covered by guides to the Canal du Midi, is not included in this publication.

The mapping of the waterways is less detailed here than in the alternative publications, showings locks, restricted entry points, navigation marks, moorings, kilometer markings and overhead bridges.

The guide aims to be more than just a set of instructions with its text providing not only technical tips and advice for navigating but also background information about the construction of the canals, historical notes on the surrounding countryside and nearby places of interest, etc.

The guide is extensively illustrated with attractive and enticing colour photos and will also provide interesting background reading before the trip.
