Carcassonne — 6 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.
Carcassonne is known for historic sites, sightseeing, and nature. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Cité de Carcassonne, explore the fascinating underground world of Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine, tour the pleasant surroundings at Canal du Midi, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Perdu.
