Carcassonne, France

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.
Cité de Carcassonne and Eglise St. Vincent are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Grotte de Niaux and River Rafting & Tubing. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, and explore the activities along Lac de la Cavayere.

For photos, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, read Carcassonne trip itinerary planner.

You can drive from Barcelona to Carcassonne in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. Traveling from Barcelona in August, plan for a bit cooler nights in Carcassonne, with lows around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can drive to Cannes.
