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.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Sat): take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, contemplate the waterfront views at Canal du Midi, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, then steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, and finally admire the local landmark of Fountain of Neptune.
