Review of Athos barge

The European Waterways' Athos barge was constructed in 1964 as a commercial grain, sand and wine barge. In 1982, the vessel was converted into a 10-passenger luxurious hotel barge but its association with wine continues today. Athos gracefully meanders through Languedoc-Roussillon region of France and the rustic landscapes of Canal du Midi, which is a historic landmark and UNESCO world heritage site between Toulouse and Sete on the Southwestern corner of France.Athos barge cruise ship
