Carcassonne — 2 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.
You've now added Porte Narbonnaise to your itinerary. On the 28th (Fri), explore the historical opulence of Chateau Comtal, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, then contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, and finally take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 29th (Sat): examine the collection at Musee de L'Inquisition, then make a trip to Canal du Midi, then Head underground at Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine, and finally learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards.
