Carcassonne, France — 3 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.
Kids will enjoy Cité de Carcassonne and Reserve Africaine de Sigean. Step out of the city life by going to Grotte de Niaux and Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine. Take a break from Carcassonne with a short trip to Etang de Bages-Sigean in Bages, about 56 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, tour the pleasant surroundings at Place Gambetta, steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, and explore the activities along Lac de Cavayere.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Carcassonne trip planner.
