On the 23rd (Sun), engage your brain at Cite de l'espace and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Saint-Sernin.

Carcassonne

Carcassonne ©
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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Mon): learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, then contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, then take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, and finally admire the local landmark of Fountain of Neptune.
