Carcassonne, France

— 1 day

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.
On the 27th (Thu), take a stroll through Cité de Carcassonne, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Le Parc Australien, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Lac de la Cavayere.

For photos, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Carcassonne online trip maker.
