Canal du midi, France

This 150-mile (240-km) canal, running from Toulouse to the port town of Sète, was built in the 17th century as a shortcut from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. Hire a narrow boat and navigate your own way, or charter a more luxurious barge and put your feet up. Along the way, you’ll pass ancient villages, magnificent châteaux and vineyards, and through 91 locks.
