Sète, France (for Carcassone)
Off the southern coast of France lies Sète, an artists’ commune and your gateway to the UNESCO-designated city of Carcassonne. As though stolen from the pages of a fairytale, the walled city of Carcassonne features an enormous yet picturesque castle overlooking the Aude River.
Cite dé Carcassonne
With its medieval castle boasting a drawbridge and 53 towers, Cite dé Carcassonne is a magical UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inside fortified walls lay cobblestone streets lined with such treasures as the Basilica of St. Nazaire and St. Celse, a national monument.
Canal du Midi
Thousands of men and women alike constructed this 150-mile canal in the 17th century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site that flows through Carcassonne, the tree-lined canal provides a shortcut between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.
Built upon two hills northeast of Sète, Montpellier is a vibrant medieval city with spectacular architecture, from Saint-Pierre Cathedral to the Renaissance mansions and the main plaza, Place de la Comédie, with its beautiful 18th-century Three Graces fountain.
