Montpellier — 3 nights

"Montpellier is a modern, compact, and fast-growing city about 10 km (6 mi) inland from the Mediterranean coast with an active, youthful vibe.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Montpellier: Pont du Gard (in Vers-Pont-du-Gard), L'Arene des Bieres (in Marguerittes) and Nimes (Tour Magne, La Maison Carree, &more). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Musee Fabre, get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, step into the grandiose world of Tours et Remparts d'Aigues-Mortes, and meet the residents at Planet Ocean Montpellier.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Montpellier travel route planning website.

Carcassonne — 3 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.
Take a break from Carcassonne with a short trip to Reserve Africaine de Sigean in Sigean, about 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, appreciate the extensive heritage of La Cite Medievale, don't miss a visit to La Porte D'aude, and pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire.

For photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Carcassonne day trip website.

Drive from Montpellier to Carcassonne in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. In September, daily temperatures in Carcassonne can reach 29°C, while at night they dip to 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Argeles-sur-Mer.
