Carcassonne, France

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.
Get in touch with nature at Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine and Le Cocagne. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, learn about winemaking at Chateau St Jacques d’Albas, and get to know the fascinating history of Place Carnot.
