City of Light

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Get out of town with these interesting Paris side-trips: Versailles (The Water Parterres, Palace of Versailles, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Montmartre, steep yourself in history at Sainte-Chapelle, and admire the striking features of Arc de Triomphe.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Thu): wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, don't miss a visit to Canal du Midi, then let your taste buds guide you at Vin en Vacances - Food & Wine Tours, and finally learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards.

Plan my Carcassonne trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
