Carcassonne — 2 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.
Kick off your visit on the 8th (Wed): step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, and then visit Cité de Carcassonne. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, then contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de Cavayere, and then do a tasting at O'Vineyards.

To find photos, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Carcassonne travel itinerary planner.

Traveling by car from Perpignan to Carcassonne takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in June, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Nimes.
