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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Cité de Carcassonne, explore the world behind art at Musee des Beaux-Arts, brush up on your military savvy at Centre Culturel De La Memoire Combattante, and learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards.
