Carcassonne

Carcassonne ©

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.
Carcassonne is known for historic sites, nature, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, admire the local landmark of Fountain of Neptune, and get outside with Eaurizon.
