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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Cité de Carcassonne and O'Vineyards. Do your shopping at Place de la Comedie and Philippe Boccardi, Artisan Chocolatier. Change things up with these side-trips from Carcassonne: Montpellier (Room Escape Games & Cathedrale St. Pierre), Albi (Pont Vieux, Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, &more) and Toulouse (Le Capitole, Church of Les Jacobins, &more). There's more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire and steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles.
