Set in the heart of the triangle that is Clermont-Ferrand, Toulouse and Montpellier in the midi-Pyrenees region, you will find the capital of the Aveyron department, beautiful Rodez. A town that prior to 2014 would not normally be on the tourist list due to its tricky rural location, making it difficult to get to by both rail and road. However, thanks to new motorways, dual carriageways and a brand new museum dedicated to the life and art of Pierre Soulages, Rodez has found its way onto many travellers’ ‘to do’ lists. The centre of modern Rodez is still visibly enclosed by old Roman and medieval city walls which are worth a visit alone. Due to its previous isolation, the historic heart of Rodez is relatively unspoilt and well preserved. Packed full of history and tradition, Rodez is a maze of narrow streets, alleyways and quaint squares just waiting to be explored.

Getting there

Now, in just 1 and a half hours you can fly from Southampton directly to Rodez – Aveyron Airport with Eastern Airways from 2nd June until 18th August 2017. With the airport just 10km from the centre of Rodez, it makes sense to grab a taxi or hire a car of your own to help you to see as much of the area as you can . There are trains and buses from the centre of Rodez if you want to travel further afield into the Pyrenees.
