Carcassonne was created under the Romans and fortified in the Middle Ages. During the tour of the city of Carcassonne, you see the various stages of construction, understand the crusade against the Cathars and follow history of the city until today.
Restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the nineteenth century, this fortified city was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1997 while the lower town called Bastide Saint-Louis, is now part of a conservation program.

Come walk in Carcassonne for a visit tailored to your pace, to discover the sites you want. Admire the medieval architecture and discover the rich culture that inspired poets and writers such as William Faulkner.

The town consists of two parts: the old city itself and the city of Carcassonne. Normally the tours focus on the city, but it is possible to visit the rest of the city if you want.
