Carcassonne — 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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Carcassonne: Albi (Cloitre de la Collegiale Saint Salvy & Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile) and Toulouse (Musee des Augustins, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, don't miss a visit to La Porte D'aude, step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, and do a tasting at Chateau St Jacques d’Albas.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Carcassonne online day trip planner.
