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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Eglise Saint-Nazaire and O'Vineyards. Escape the urban bustle at Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine and Grotte de Limousis. Step out of Carcassonne to go to Brousses-et-Villaret and see Le Moulin à Papier de Brousses, which is approximately 30 minutes away.
