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.

And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, learn about winemaking at O'Vineyards, appreciate the extensive heritage of Place Carnot, and contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles.
