What is it in Carcassone that makes history come to life?

Those walls have quite a history. It's quite appalling, actually, to see the moat between the two walls and the holes in the inner wall for spilling hot oil on invaders. It's a interesting history, nonetheless.

Well - It would be to say - don't visit the main draw !! The crowds are in the cite . A beautiful place - fairy tale castle as everyone will say - but very touristy through the day. Didn't get chance to see at night , but sure it would be very quiet. That said the rest of Carcasonne was very quiet at night time too. Would love to go back again though with more time and walk outside of the cite by the river bank and look back at the view - Peaceful and beautiful.

Carcassone's old walled city is in good condition, however it is very touristy with all of the buildings now dedicated to hotels, restaurants and shops. The cathedral is a welcome exception to this.

We had a very nice dinner at the L'Escargot. It's a tapas restaurant, not too fancy, but the waiter was very nice and the food was superb. Make sure you try their home-made foie gras and the fish with vanilla sauce (I think the name was Mahi-Mahi).
