Carcassonne, France

— 4 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 Le Phare de Port la Nouvelle (in Port La Nouvelle), Reserve Africaine de Sigean (in Sigean) and Abbaye de Fontfroide (in Narbonne). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, step into the grandiose world of Chateaux de Lastours, and examine the collection at Le Moulin à Papier de Brousses.
