Carcassonne

— 4 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Carcassonne: Toulouse (Church of Les Jacobins, Le Capitole, &more). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Cité de Carcassonne, contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de la Cavayere, get outside with Eaurizon, and do a tasting at Winemaker Workshops.

To find reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Carcassonne tour itinerary planning website.

In July in Carcassonne, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 20°C at night.
