Explore Carcassonne in your car rental.
The town is split into the Cité de Carcassonne (the fortified old town which is an UNESCO world heritage site) and the lower Ville Basse.
There is a reason why Carcassonne is one of the most popular tourist destinations in France and as soon as you spot the hilltop fortress of the old town, you will immediately understand why Gustave Naduad (a 19th-century French songwriter) said, “You should not die without seeing Carcassonne.”
Strolling through the Cité de Carcassonne you will feel as if you have slipped in to a perfect medieval fairytale.Cynics say that some of the renovations are too perfect but unless you are an expert you will love the ancient streets, buildings and pointed towers that are all encased within the fortified town walls.
In comparison the Ville Basse is a calm respite where you will be able to enjoy a gentle boat trip, canal side walk or relaxing meal outside the main tourist beacon.
Carcassonne is in the heart of the Languedoc wine country and there are many local vineyards to visit.A short drive in your cheap car hire will take you to Limoux, this flourishing wine making town claim to be the true inventors of sparkling wine with Dom Perignon allegedly stealing the idea.Less than an hour’s drive away are also the famous Languedoc wine regions of Fitou and Corbières.
