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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes O'Vineyards. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Carcassonne: Toulouse (Le Capitole, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more), Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile (in Albi) and Reserve Africaine de Sigean (in Sigean). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Cité de Carcassonne, contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de la Cavayere, admire the landmark architecture of Abbaye de Fontfroide, and deepen your understanding at Salin d'Aigues-Mortes.
