Carcassonne

— 30 nights

Medieval Heart of France

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: Aeroscopia (in Blagnac), Toulouse (Jardin Japonais, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more) and Montpellier (Carre Sainte-Anne, Musee Fabre, &more). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Cité de Carcassonne, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, explore the activities along Lac de la Cavayere, and take an in-depth tour of Parc de la Prehistoire.

For photos, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Carcassonne route planning website.

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 up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
