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.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Wed): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Carcassonne Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, then stop by Cité de Carcassonne, and finally take in the views from Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge).
