Enjoy a private tour of the magnificent fortified town of Carcassonne.


Visit Carcassonne and discover the rich history of France during nearly 2600 years. Carcassonne has been first occupied by Gallic settlement 6 century BC, then by Romans, Visigoths, arabs, francs, feudals and French Kings. During this prosperous period, Catharism grew rapidly in Carcassonne.

Stroll down medieval streets, discover Narbonnaise gates - the principal entrance to the Cité and the Castle and ramparts of Carcassonne, visit the Basilica of Saint Nazaire and enjoy the view from city's walls.

Carcassonne is divided into 2 parts; the upper town - Cité de Carcassonne and the lower city - the Bastide of Saint Louis. If you would like to visit not only Cité but the Bastide as well the, the tour can be customized to suit.
