Carcassonne, France

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.
On the 19th (Mon), take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of Saint-Nazaire, steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, then step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, then step into the grandiose world of Cité de Carcassonne, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Carcassonne Cathedral.
