Carcassonne

— 6 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Carcassonne: Albi (Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, &more) and Toulouse (Church of Les Jacobins, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, appreciate the extensive heritage of La Cite Medievale, take in the views from Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge), and contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de la Cavayere.
