Start by visiting the city of Carcassonne, a first-class medieval architectural ensemble, then the château comtal, from which you can access the ramparts and in which an exhibition abut the restoration of the city during the 19th century is held year-round. Another unmissable location is the Saint-Nazaire Basilica, a church of Romanesque origin. In the evening, visit the open-air Jean Deschamps theater. For your last day in the area, venture outside the city to enjoy the region's landscapes.
While staying at our Campanile hotel, you will have plenty of time to discover the architectural wonders of Carcassonne. We recommend that you take a tour of the St. Louis Bastide to enjoy its pedestrian streets lined with many shops. You can also stroll along the banks of the famous Canal du Midi, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean and UNESCO World Heritage listed in 1996. Finally, be sure to visit the city's Museum of Fine Arts as it houses some wonders, including a telescope used by Napoleon during his return trip from the island of Elbe in 1815.
