Festival City

Although its luxury shops, nightlife, casinos, and high-end restaurants give Cannes a feeling of exclusivity, this classic French Riviera city has alternatives to suit every budget.
Bring the kids along to Vieille Ville and Marineland. Get out of town with these interesting Cannes side-trips: Nice (Colline du Chateau overlook, Promenade des Anglais, &more). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Musee Picasso, wander the streets of Rue d'Antibes, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise St Pierre & Paul, and don't miss a visit to Galerie1414.

For reviews, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Cannes day trip site.

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 26th (Sat): pause for some serene contemplation at Carcassonne Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, then wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, and finally take in the views from Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge).

For maps, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Carcassonne trip builder tool.

Drive from Saint-Tropez to Carcassonne in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or fly. In September, daily temperatures in Carcassonne can reach 77°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Paris.
