Carcassonne — 4 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.
Explore Carcassonne's surroundings by going to Albi (Les Jardins de la Berbie, Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, &more) and Toulouse (Room Escape Games, Basilique Saint-Sernin, &more). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Cité de Carcassonne, contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, step into the grandiose world of Chateaux de Lastours, and do a tasting at O'Vineyards.
