Carcassonne

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.
Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some serene contemplation at Carcassonne Cathedral, then wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, and finally admire the masterpieces at Musee des Beaux-Arts.

Plan my Carcassonne trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Fly from Paris to Carcassonne in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or drive. When traveling from Paris in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Carcassonne: temperatures range from 77°F by day to 57°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can go by car to Avignon.
