On the Occitanie Rail Tour

Discover Brive

Brive “the Brave” who valiantly defended her walls, is a dynamic and welcoming town with a heart that beats to the clamour of the rugby stadium. The town is one of the gateways to Occitanie, and most certainly the starting point for your fabulous journeys to come through the Lot Dordogne Valley.

Brive boasts a rich cultural heritage, including sandstone town houses, museums and monuments whose golden patina stands out in the setting sun.

In Brive, you'll enjoy: 

  • Visiting the traditional market, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the Georges Brassens market hall,
  • Daydreaming in -Colette's gardens (accessible by bike along the green route)  
  • Visiting Turenne, one of the most beautiful villages in France, 14 minutes by train.
