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.
Get out of town with these interesting Carcassonne side-trips: Toulouse (Le Capitole, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more), Eglise Notre-Dame-de-la-Dreche (in Cagnac-les-Mines) and Montpellier (Place Saint-Roch, Musee Fabre, &more). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, let your taste buds guide you at Vin en Vacances - Food & Wine Tours, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, and do a tasting at O'Vineyards.
