Today's included guided tour of the medieval city of Carcassonne - one of the most striking walled settlements in the whole of Europe - will introduce you to the city, after which you are free to explore at leisure. Restored in the mid-19th Century, the bastion includes the inner Chateau Comtal and the beautiful Church of St-Nazaire.
Continue your exploration, or join today's optional excursion to the exquisite port-town of Collioure. Visit the palm-fringed promenade that curves around the bay, before enjoying a visit to charming Narbonne - once the Roman capital of all of southern Gaul - with its imposing 13th-century cathedral
Today's included excursion takes you first to the spectacular, UNESCO-listed Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard. Straddling the River Gard, it has three levels and is regarded as a masterpiece of Roman engineering.We then make the short journey to delightful Avignon. Don't miss the curious half-bridge of St-Benezet - the 'Pont d'Avignon' of the famous French folk song - or the Palais des Papes - the 14th-century home of popes and cardinals.
Our last full day brings with it the opportunity to cruise a section of the tree-lined Canal du Midi, part of the 240-kilometre-long waterway connecting the Atlantic with the Mediterranean. Later, enjoy your last evening - perhaps dining in one of the atmospheric restaurants in Carcassonne's wonderful Cite
We leave Carcassonne, today, transferring to the airport for the flight home at the end of a wonderful holiday.
This renovated hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the medieval city, restaurants and shops.
This friendly and comfortable Ibis is situated in a peaceful area of Carcassonne, approximately one mile from the medieval city, which can be reached by local bus, or on foot in approximately 20 minutes.
