  • This was a great way to learn about the city. With commentary in many different languages it’s a must for all!

  • This train is a fun start when you Just arrived at Carcassonne. It drives you arround the outer city wall and tells you some information about the city and it towers and gates.
  • Great trip. In 20 minutes you can learn castle history sitting in little train. Kids love it
  • This train goes on the road outside the outer walls so you can admire the views from outside. Worth the money especially for families, kids, etc. to cover ground and enjoy the views. Excellent recorded commentary via speakers in French. The train driver told me it was his father's voice, and that his father was the train driver before him! :)
  • 25 mins pleasant to go around the city, friendly people in the little train (driver and person taking charge of the tickets) Small bugs sometimes on the translation devices of the visit. The visit was a great discovery. The descent with the little train was quite a fun time 😉 I recommend .
  • Located just in front of the Narbonnaise gate, this first contact with the medieval city is interesting. Everywhere we go, we often use this means of discovery. This avoids (walking unnecessarily), but mainly it sometimes provides useful information for the rest of the visit. Regarding the little train to Carcassonne medieval city. We arrived at the first departure. Few people, we went up the first, the operator provided a step to go up and down. Everyone had their mask on, whether on or around the train. We didn't have to squeeze in the seats at all. The visit was informative, the only downside, the soundtrack comments lacked a little energy. The person accompanying the driver still spoke. The price is more or less identical to other departures in France. Right after we went to the tourist office to get more details and continue our cultural journey. If possible, here are two very useful tips. Arrive (early) in the morning, plan to do this tour on a sunny day. We were lacking that day.
