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.

There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, wander the streets of Montmartre, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Île de la Cité.

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.
Start off your visit on the 7th (Thu): pause for some serene contemplation at Carcassonne Cathedral, wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, snap pictures at Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge), then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, and finally do a tasting at O'Vineyards.
