Starting from $299 USD / Adult
Feel the past wash over you in Carcassonne, a medieval wonder that’s as well preserved as it is fascinating. Follow a local guide through the stone streets and learn about the rich history that presents itself at every turn. The city was settled as early as the 6th Century BC and would later become a thriving Roman town. Carcassonne took its definitive shape in the 13th century when the great double-rampart walls were built and the mighty castle was extended. Speaking of which, your tour includes a visit to the town’s fabled fortress where you’ll enjoy a wonderfully close look at the remnants of a bygone era and surely imagine what life must have been like centuries ago. Centuries later, Carcassonne is now home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. After your guided walk, enjoy some time to rest while enjoying lunch in a local restaurant. After lunch enjoy some time to explore on your own. Browse the local shops. Embrace the medieval charms of Carcassonne.
