Carcassonne — 3 nights

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.
Cité de Carcassonne and Chateaux de Lastours will appeal to history buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Place de la Comedie and Eglise Saint-Nazaire. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Carcassonne: Montpellier (Musee Fabre & Halles Laissac), Albi (The Market Hall, Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, &more) and Toulouse (Church of Les Jacobins, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more). It doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Jeff de Bruges Carcassonne and explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal.
