Before that time people did not travel for wine, car holidays or trips to the Languedoc (Occitanie), not even for camping, the beach and the sea, but for pilgrimage, trade, science or and health, not for pure pleasure. That has since changed with millions of tourists each year in France, still for many people the favorite destination for holidays.
