Barge Lady itinerary follows Tour de France along Canal du Midi

The Barge Lady, a broker of luxury barge cruises, has designed a Tour de France-themed cruise, set to follow the bike racers' route along the Canal du Midi in France's Languedoc-Roussillon region from July 10 through 16.

The cruise, aboard the six-passenger Savannah, is priced from $31,225 for the full charter. The rate includes all meals, wine with lunch and dinner, an open bar, daily escorted excursions and the use of onboard bicycles.

The trip departs from Narbonne, France, and the itinerary includes three days on the cycling route, including VIP access to the grandstand at the finish line; a stop in Carcassonne, a Unesco World Heritage Site and home of the Cite de Carcassonne fortress; and wine tastings, shopping and sightseeing along the way.
