Program Description
Burt takes us on a tour of the city of Toulouse, discovers why the color blue terrified the soldiers of ancient Rome and how the cloth dyers of Toulouse used blue to make a fortune. They don't call royal families blue bloods for nothing. We visit the largest Romanesque Church in Europe, find out how in 1222 the King of France set the pattern for Donald Trump's real estate deals. We take a look at a group of 35,000-year-old cave paintings that were used to teach young men to hunt. We find out where to rent a houseboat and wander along one of the most beautiful canals in the world. We are guided through the largest collection of works by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, visit Carcassonne, a walled city for over 2,500 year, and stop into one of the finest restaurants in the area to check out the local specialties.
