Under Roman rule, most of Occitania was known as Aquitania , [12] the earlier conquered territories were known as Provincia Romana (see modern Provence ), while the northern provinces of what is now France were called Gallia ( Gaul ). Under the Later Empire, both were grouped in the Seven Provinces, then Nine Provinces or Viennensis. So Provence and Gallia Aquitania (or Aquitanica ) are the names used since medieval times for Occitania (. Limousin , Auvergne , Languedoc and Gascony ). Thus the historic Duchy of Aquitaine must not be confused with the modern French region called Aquitaine : this is the main reason why the term Occitania was revived in the mid-19th century. The names "Occitania" [13] and "Occitan language" ( Occitana lingua ) appeared in Latin texts from as early as 1242–1254 [14] to 1290 [15] and during the following years of the early 14th century; texts exist in which the area is referred to indirectly as "the country of the Occitan language" ( Patria Linguae Occitanae ). This derives from the name Lenga d'òc that was used in Italian ( Lingua d'òc ) by Dante in the late 13th century. The somewhat uncommon ending of the term Occitania is most probably a portmanteau French clerks coined from òc [ɔk] and Aquitània [ɑkiˈtanjɑ] , thus blending the language and the land in just one concept.

The Tour de France and the Giro de Italia have made Europe synonymous with cycling. But you donʼt have to be a pro to enjoy the pleasures of pedaling past beautiful countryside and historic sites. Europe is covered with cycle routes and footpaths so you can enjoy the region at your own pace
