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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Albi (Pont Vieux, Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, &more) and Toulouse (Quai de la Daurade, Church of Les Jacobins, &more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, admire the local landmark of Fountain of Neptune, and pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire.

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

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major aiports are Carcassonne Airport, Perpignan-Rivesaltes (Llabanère) Airport, Béziers-Vias Airport and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. In March, daytime highs in Carcassonne are 17°C, while nighttime lows are 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
