Add To Plan

Begin with a scenic drive from Port Vendres to Carcassonne, a fortified town which is well-known around the world. Still occupied by many residents, this medieval city boasts 52 towers and two concentrated walls which form two miles of protection. The Castle, the towers, and the city walls belong to the French state; the remainder of the city is solely administered by the municipality of Carcassonne. Enjoy a guided tour of the old city of Carcassonne. See the Narbonne Gate, the most important architectural feature of this period. The two huge towers form an impressive pointed buttress. View the list, an area between the two city walls. See the various types of military architectures, then proceed to the Basilicia of Saint-Nazaire, "The Jewel of the Old City." See the remains of the Romanesque Cathedral, a barrel-vaulted nave, supported by two side aisles with semi-circular vaults. View the Count's Castle, built in the 12th century by the Trencavels, Viscounts of Carcassonne. Enjoy free time for lunch on your own and to stroll through the narrow streets of the walled city before returning to the ship.
