Exceptional
lovely old town, very accessible from Toulouse airport. Interesting architecture, a "lived in " town. No particular parking problems in January. Lots of interesting restaurants and cafes. The Cite is fascinating and well worth visiting.

Going out of season meant that the castle and grounds were almost deserted so we could really have a good look around. The weather however was cold and wet so we had to wrap up warm.

A must see city for its beauty and historic charm. Pick a day with good weather and you will love to walk around the city. It's beautiful at night as well.

Beautiful medieval city; a must visit for anyone in the area. Staying inside the city walls is fun and makes it easy to visit Carcassonne citadel at your leisure. We also visited during January which felt like we had the whole citadel to ourselves.

A fantastic setting best viewed from a far. The walled city is an excellent historic place to visit and easier to see and get around off season. Carcassonne as a town is also worth a walk around with interesting architeture and social squares to sit and have a drink in.

Recommendations for Carcassonne

The food is very similar everywhere in this southwest region of France, but just because there are tourists in Carcassonne doesn't mean there aren't good places to eat in the walled city. Do your research on the cuisine and wine before you arrive and choose a place that looks inviting, most likely you won't be disappointed.

A cidade amuralhada, fora e dentro, é um espetáculo à parte. Vale muito a pena ver e entrar para comer, observar, divertir-se.

Go early we went in at 9.00 am had petit dejanur 10'e for 2 very reasonable left at 11 Was filling up by then

Medieval Cite, Canal du Midi, Ville Basse (market,restaurants, and le shopping!!)

Classic French dishes on every corner with great value prices.

Very well restored and kept castle

Get a map wear comfortable shoes

the whole city plus the castle
