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.
Visiting Eaurizon and Lac de la Cavayere will get you outdoors. Explore Carcassonne's surroundings by going to Chateau la Voulte Gasparets (in Boutenac), Etang de Bages-Sigean (in Bages) and Narbonne (Canal de la Robine, Abbaye de Fontfroide, &more). There's much more to do: learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards, let your taste buds guide you at Vin en Vacances - Food & Wine Tours, whizz through the canopy at 02 Aventure, and trek along Mayronnes Sculpture Trail.

To find maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Carcassonne trip itinerary app.

Drive from Axat to Carcassonne in 1.5 hours. August in Carcassonne sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 19°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
