Carcassonne — 2 nights

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.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Tue): explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, then steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, then don't miss a visit to La Porte D'aude, and finally wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne.
