Travel back through the ages on a guided exploration of the remarkably preserved French treasure of Carcassonne. Settled as early as the sixth century B.C., the town boasts some 2,500 years of history and over 1,000 years of military architecture. Wander narrow ways and hear stories of the city’s past. Learn about its days under Roman Rule and witness relics from The Middle Ages. Most significantly, marvel at the preserved architecture and relics from the 13th century, when the city took on its definitive shape. Upon the King’s orders, Carcassonne’s mighty double ramparts were erected and its great castle was made all the more spectacular. Restored to perfection in the 19th century by Viollet le Duc, Carcassonne remains a monumental work of walkable history and is listed among UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
  • Stroll through the rustic streets of Carcassonne, settled as early as the sixth century B.C.
  • Learn about the city’s ancient history, Roman period, and burgeoning era during The Middle Ages.
  • Visit a Benedictine Monastery in the nearby town of Fontfriode dating back to 1093.
