  • The medieval city of Carcassonne is one of the historic places in the world to visit absolutely. It is advisable to buy your ticket online to avoid the long queue in front of the castle entrance.

  • Beautifully renovated. A bit bare though without any furniture, weaponry, and other authentic items; just room after room. Good that the tour is quite long with lots of viewing points.
  • UNESCO World Heritage-listed site inside the medieval castle. Entrance is EUR 9.50, with EUR 3 for the audio guide. A bit pricey but I recommend a visit if you are a fan of medieval castles, walls, or Kate Mosse.
