Carcassonne — 1 night

Medieval Heart of France

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.
You've now added Petit train de Carcassonne to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 6th (Thu): steep yourself in history at Porte Narbonnaise, take in the local landmarks with Petit train de Carcassonne, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, then steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, and finally snap pictures at Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge). On the 7th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get to know the fascinating history of Cité de Carcassonne, explore the activities along Canal du Midi, and then contemplate the long history of Chateaux de Lastours.
