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.

On the 15th (Wed), take in the awesome beauty at Mount Perdu, don't miss a visit to La Porte D'aude, take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, then contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, and finally do a tasting at O'Vineyards.
