Castle
“The astounding walls of Carcassonne’s citadel are an architectural wonder and draw visitors to the city from far and wide. After discovering every niche, passageway and parapet you can navigate the streets of the hilltop settlement or venture into the less touristy Lower City for lunch or a shopping trip. The ideal time to come is early, before the tourist hordes and lunch time.”

Point of Interest
“CANAL DU MIDI BOAT TRIP, CARCASSONNE: This isn't the only boat trip on the Canal du Midi but if you intend on visiting Carcassonne, then you have a choice of two or three trips (with corresponding lengths of trips to suit everyone). You'll be taken along part of the Canal du Midi and told the amazing history of its creation. You'll go through one or two of the automatic locks which are pretty impressive pieces of engineering. And - depending on the trip's length, you may get a chance to get off the boat, stretch your legs or have a quick drink at a Canal-side cafe while watching the world go by.”

“Entrée square Gambetta. Musée gratuit, dans un beau bâtiment. Une exposition permanente, aux nombreuses toiles du XVI° au XIX°, dans lesquelles on peut s'amuser à croiser nombre de personnages célèbres de la ville, qui ont donné leurs noms aux rues. Et des expositions temporaires variées, toujours intéressantes.”
