We drove to Carcassonne from the coastline, which was a great experience. You could see the Castle far away. Our visit was in the day time, but I could imagine that it would be nice to watch the sun go down, and see the Castle in a different light. We went to a torture museum, which was interesting.
The only negative experience was the food. It was expensive, and the staff couldn´t tell us about the menu in other languages than French...hard to understand in one of the larges turist attractions in the country!
