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 24th (Thu): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, then do a tasting at Chateau Canet, and finally do a tasting at O'Vineyards. Keep things going the next day: explore the activities along Lac de la Cavayere, don't miss a visit to La Porte D'aude, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Cité de Carcassonne, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Carcassonne Cathedral.
