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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Toulouse (Jardin Japonais, Basilique Saint-Sernin, & more), Montpellier (Musee Fabre, Place de la Comedie, & more) and Albi (Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile, Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, & more). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, and identify plant and animal life at Reserve Africaine de Sigean.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Carcassonne online travel route planner .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Carcassonne Airport, Perpignan-Rivesaltes (Llabanère) Airport, Béziers-Vias Airport and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Carcassonne can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
