Millau Jazz Fest – 15/22 July 06

millaujazz.jpg
Yet another reason to visit (or re-visit) the town of Millau (12 Aveyron, Midi-Pyrenees) this summer – the Millau Jazz Festival runs from 15th – 22nd July 2006, which means that instead of the town ringing to the thunder of long queues of slow-moving heavy traffic as in years gone by, you can now be serenaded (or at least intrigued) by the sound of music throughout the town.
With the opening of Norman Foster’s Viaduc de Millau last year, the town has been re-born and is a pleasant provincial town once more – not particularly exciting of itself, but spectacularly situated on the River Tarn with views of the gorge and bridge – and offering the usual mix of decent shops, hotels and restaurants to enjoy.
The bridge is well worth a few hours detour – to view it from below – and to drive over – PLUS the surrounding area is wonderfully unspoilt and (still, for now) largely untouristed!
