Capture The Best Of Carcassonne In Just 4 Hours

From Toulouse depart for a half day tour to the fortified city of Carcassonne one of the most famous Unesco World Heritage Sites of the region. On this half day trip to Carcassonne, we will first come and pick you up at your centrally located accommodation in Toulouse. Meet your English speaking driver who will go over the itinerary and program of the day with you. Then you will board your air conditioned minivan and it will be time to drive off to this mornings destination. The drive from Toulouse to Carcassonne is of about an hour. As you drive, admire the Languedoc landscape with its rolling hills, fields of bright yellow sunflowers and of course the Canal du Midi that you will follow until Carcassonne.

Reach the cité of Carcassonne that looks like some fairy-tale medieval city. Bathed in late-afternoon sunshine and highlighted by dark clouds, La Cité, as the old walled city is known, is truly breathtaking. The visit of the Basilica with its outstanding stained-glass windows that date back to the middle ages is a must. After the visit of the Cité, enjoy some free time for personal discovery. Then, we will drive you back to Toulouse and that will be the end of our services.
