Carcassonne ©
Best known as a fortified town, Carcassonne is a walled city that provided the inspiration for the castle in Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" and the location for many scenes in Kevin Costner's movie "Robin Hood." For a daily dose of excitement, medieval jousting tournaments are held twice per day between the two walls--while this may sound like a typical touristy show, it's actually an entertaining display of combative competition and horsemanship.
Change things up with these side-trips from Carcassonne: Montpellier (Carre Sainte-Anne, Musee Fabre, &more), Aeroscopia (in Blagnac) and Toulouse (Jardin Japonais, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, and take an in-depth tour of Parc de la Prehistoire.

Plan my trip to Carcassonne with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Carcassonne Airport, Perpignan-Rivesaltes (Llabanère) Airport, Béziers-Vias Airport and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
