Tours to Beziers - do we drive or train?

We will be staying in Tours next spring and need to travel to Beziers in one day to start a Midi Canal cruise. Looking at the train timetable, it will take 6+ hours to get down there. We have a hire car in Tours and we were thinking of driving down but after a scary week of driving in Italy this year – we are more than a little hesitant. Would it be best to head down the day before? Any advice would be appreciated.

How did you come up with only 6+ hours by train?

Driving in France is a pleasure. Owing to the distance, I'd make an overnight stop.

Thanks so much for your suggestions. We would have liked to have done it on the day but fear it may have been a bit rushed as we need meet our cruise buddies in Beziers at 2.00pm. Heading down the day before with an over night stop seems to be the best option.

“viamichelin.com” – haven’t seen that one before and it looks very helpful.

Thanks again

Hi

I quite often drive Montpellier - Blois, about 650 kms.

It always seems to take longer than expected. Don't know why.

It is a good road, very scenic ....... but allow 7 hours.
