Carcassonne

— 14 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Toulouse (Basilique Saint-Sernin, Quai de la Daurade, &more), Albi (Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile & Les Jardins de la Berbie) and Eglise Saint-Pierre et Saint-Phebade (in Venerque). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Cité de Carcassonne, admire the landmark architecture of Tours et Remparts d'Aigues-Mortes, contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de la Cavayere, and steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiports are Carcassonne Airport, Perpignan-Rivesaltes (Llabanère) Airport, Béziers-Vias Airport and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. August in Carcassonne sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 19°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
