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.
Step out of the city life by going to Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine and Lac de la Cavayere. Cité de Carcassonne and Eglise Saint-Nazaire will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Carcassonne: Narbonne (Abbaye de Fontfroide & Cathedrale St-Just), Famille Fabre (in Luc-sur-Orbieu) and Gruissan (Notre-Dame-des-Auzils & Plage Du Grazel). Next up on the itinerary: learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards, get outside with Eaurizon, pause for some serene contemplation at Carcassonne Cathedral, and step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal.

To find other places to visit, reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Carcassonne trip itinerary builder tool.
