Carcassonne — 2 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.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Wed): steep yourself in history at Cité de Carcassonne, don't miss a visit to La Porte D'aude, appreciate the extensive heritage of La Cite Medievale, then contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, then pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, and finally explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de Cavayere, then learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards, and then explore the fascinating underground world of Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine.
