Carcassonne

— 4 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.
You've added Cocoa & Grapes - Chocolate and Wine Tasting Food Tours, Jeff de Bruges Carcassonne, Chateau Comtal, and other attractions to your itinerary. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne and pause for some serene contemplation at Carcassonne Cathedral.
