France >> Carcassonne

This beautiful city is really two cities in one and is steeped in history dating back to Roman times.

Take in the delights of the well fortified part of the city that towers above the lower town area.  Down here you will stumble upon a myriad of cobbled streets that accommodate a wide selection of cafes,bars and restaurants.

Carcassonne is well worth a visit for one night as part of another trip, such as a French or Spanish trip or as part of a ski tour if you are going to the Pyrenees or Andorra.
