Carcassonne, France

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.
Kids will enjoy Cité de Carcassonne and Promenade du Front de Mer. Venture out of the city with trips to River Rafting & Tubing (in Foix), Grotte de Niaux (in Niaux) and Argeles-sur-Mer (Memorial du Camps D'Argeles-sur-Mer & DROP IN Water Jump Parc). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, take an in-depth tour of Musee De L'ecole, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de la Cavayere.

To find reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Carcassonne tour planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Carcassonne is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive.
