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 Carcassonne's surroundings by going to Tours et Remparts d'Aigues-Mortes (in Aigues-Mortes), Toulouse (Musee des Augustins, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more) and Nage Eco L'eau (in La Grande-Motte). There's still lots to do: stop by Cité de Carcassonne, steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, tour the pleasant surroundings at Reserve Africaine de Sigean, and admire the landmark architecture of Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile.

For traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Carcassonne day trip planning website.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major aiports are Carcassonne Airport, Perpignan-Rivesaltes (Llabanère) Airport, Béziers-Vias Airport and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. In June, daytime highs in Carcassonne are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 17°C.
