Carcassonne

Carcassonne ©
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.
Let the collections at Musee De L'ecole and Musee du Bois et de la Marqueterie capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Lac de Saint-Ferreol and Plage du Racou. Explore Carcassonne's surroundings by going to Sete (Musee Paul Valery & Plage de la Corniche), Argeles-sur-Mer (Scuba & Snorkeling, DROP IN Water Jump Parc, &more) and Quartier du Moure (in Collioure). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Lac de Matemale, make a splash at AQUAPARK CAP D'AGDE, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Carcassonne Cathedral, and look for all kinds of wild species at La Peche du Pont de Caylus.

For photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Carcassonne travel route planner.

You can drive from Tarbes to Carcassonne in 2.5 hours. When traveling from Tarbes in August, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Carcassonne: temperatures range from °C by day to °C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
