1h30 guided walking tour in the Cité of Carcassonne
In the morning we stop on the way at Castelnaudary to see the Canal du Midi « Grand Bassin » and the St Roch lock, a listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Then we visit La Cité de Carcassonne that is known for its UNESCO World Heritage listed walled city. A medieval fortress settlement with a history that exceeds two and a half thousand years and has over 3 km of walls with 52 towers.
The Cité is a beautiful and interesting place to visit. Strolling through the medieval village with its tiny and twisted alleys, the beautiful little buildings next to impressive buildings like the Basilique St-Nazaire, give you a hint of how life must have been. The inner detail-orientated arrangements transport the medieval charm and impress you at every other corner in this town. Make sure to walk with open eyes through the alleys!
