Carcassonne — 5 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 Eglise Saint-Nazaire will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at Musee Fabre and Musee des Augustins. Change things up with these side-trips from Carcassonne: Montpellier (Carre Sainte-Anne & Espace Dominique Bagouet), Domaine La Grangette (in Castelnau-de-Guers) and Musee Historama (in Cordes-sur-Ciel). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, learn about all things military at Centre Culturel De La Memoire Combattante, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Saint-Sernin, and take an in-depth tour of Parc de la Prehistoire.
