Fly to Rodez from Malpensa

On 7 July, Eastern Airways will unveil a new flight between Milan Malpensa and the French city of Rodez, with flights operating on a twice-weekly basis on Fridays and Sundays.

Founded in the 5th century BC in the Midi-Pyrénées region, it is a must-visit for lovers of art and architecture. The city centre is home to gems like the imposing gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral in pink sandstone, the Episcopal Palace with its horseshoe staircase and the Soulages Museum, which houses over 500 works by the Rodez-born painter Pierre Soulages. It really is a pleasure to walk through the pedestrianised streets of the historic centre, among the shops, workshops and stunning buildings from the medieval and Renaissance eras. Don’t miss Estivada, the interregional festival of Occitanie culture held every year in July.
