Midi-Pyrenees is France's largest region, spreading from the Dordogne in the north to the Spanish border in the south. Port-Vendres, only 10 miles from the Spanish border, is located on the coast that is known as the Cote Vermeille.
  For cruise vessels, Port-Vendres provides the opportunity to visit some of the prettiest areas of France. It serves as a convenient starting point for trips to Perpignan, Roussillon's historic capital; Collioure, a picturesque harbor filled with brightly colored fishing boats; and the medieval town of Carcassonne.
