Carcassonne

Since Pre-Roman times there has been a fortified settlement at Carcassonne. Nowadays you will find one of the most outstanding example of a medieval walled city in the world, which is visited by over 2 million people a year and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

As well as exploring the ramparts and getting a real sense of what it must have been like in Medieval times, Carcassonne Cité is a good place to sample the local cuisine, there is always a host of activities taking place there and of course, one of the prettiest musical venues in France.
