Carcassonne in August

We are strongly considering flying to Carcasonne on the 21st of August for nine days. We like to ramble sight see and explore on foot and bike. Could someone offer us an itinerary of where to go. We would rather not hire a car so train or bus would be the preferred mode of transport. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Getting around the countryside is near impossible without a car. Perhaps Perpignan to Villefranche de Conflent on the train - then continue with the little yellow train into the mountains. You can travel to nearby towns on the train - Narbonne - Castelnaudary among others. And to the city of Toulouse of course. Sete, Agde, Béziers, Montpellier can be reached by train too. So can Collioure and Port La Nouvelle for the seaside. Or perhaps venture into Spain.

If you want to go on day trips and do not have a car, the best is to stay in one of the towns mentioned above as they offer the best public transportation (train or bus).

Without a car you can't see many of the truly wonderful places in the area. Well, you can get to a few on public transport, but it will be cumbersome. Rent a car and get out of Carcassonne once you've visited it.
