Cité de Carcassonne
A must visit whilst in the area. Walk the narrow medieval streets and ramparts. Enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants in the square.
World famous UNESCO heritage citadel. Featured in many films and with fully working town within the walls. Many good restaurants and cafes. Live music in summer
A fantastic walled city - but beware it does get very busy in the holiday season, get there early!
“A huge hill with a cathedral sized interior. A dramatic and exciting place to bring the family.”
“Lagrasse is a beautiful artist's town with an Abbey across the river (bathing possible in the river) well worth a visit”
“The Abbey itself is both beautiful and steeped in history, with peaceful walks around the lovely gardens to fill your day. Tip: well worth getting the tablet and headset (no extra cost) which adds an extra dimension. ”
“Pour faire une balade à vélo ou de la randonnée. Il est possible de se rendre à Narbonne à vélo en toute sérénité sur les pistes cyclables. L'étang et les salines offrent un paysage ou la faune et la flore s'épanouit. ”
“One of the good caves around here with excellent stalagmites and stalactites - this one with multiple galleries, water and a stunning crystal conglomerate at the end. Well worth a visit.”
