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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Carcassonne: Montpellier (Musee Fabre, Place de la Comedie, &more), Albi (Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, &more) and Toulouse (Jardin Japonais, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, and explore the world behind art at La Cooperative-Collection Ceres Franco.
