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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Carcassonne: Reserve Africaine de Sigean (in Sigean), Toulouse (Musee des Augustins, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more) and Albi (Cloitre de la Collegiale Saint Salvy, Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, &more). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards, meet the residents at Seaquarium, and explore the activities along Lac de la Cavayere.
