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.

There's much more to do: do a tasting at O'Vineyards, indulge in some culinary diversions at Vin en Vacances - Food & Wine Tours, stop by Cité de Carcassonne, and snap pictures at Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge).
