get totally transported back to the middle ages but with today's modern ammenities. Such a charming place to walk around, have some coffee or delicious meals in one of the many restaurants or just walk around the walled city. Truly amazing

If you like history and architecture, you will love Carcassonne. Spectacular example of a fortified city. Well worth a visit, LAN a full day. Can be very busy during high season.

We have visited many medieval villages in Europe, but nothing as grandiose as this restored city. Entering through the walls takes one back hundreds of years to the days of knights, maidens and the like. Even the shops and restaurants were remininscent of medieval markets. The city walls and catheral architecture fascinating with the layers from different eras...and the tour of the castle itself gave a superb understanding of medieval history - both life and warfare. It is a stop not to be missed while traveling in the Langue-doc region of France.

So beautiful! everything is beautiful: fortifications, the cattle, the basilica, gardens...Beautiful view on the city,,, You can find many restaurants, souvenir shops and hotel (I think the only one). They make the annual festival in summer time and I heard that they also have a marathon inside the City. You have to go visit if you pass by! It was great!
