  • To be in Carcassonne and not to see the castle, or rather built in the Middle Ages of the fortress is like to be in Rome and not to see the pope. Double row wall, 38 towers, similar to the sharp hats of witches. This castle is a small town, there are everything, shops, restaurants, hotels. Fabulous architecture.

  • How many tourists have we seen during our visit, desperately seeking access to the ramparts! You have to visit the castle first!! A castle inside the Citadel. The hourds are spectacular and the Lapidary Museum very interesting.

  • Highly recommended. The castle looks amazing and the Rampart walks are amazing. Easily worth the price. The place is absolutely beautiful and the views are astounding - so much I chose to propose to my girlfriend there.
  • Magical medieval village and castle experience. Plan to stay for hours. Have a meal or just a coffee and take time to shop. I suggest the castle tour by voiced machine, but it can be frustrating to use.
