I have more photos of Carcassonne to show you! Here is a Tourisme site with some great videos too!
Carcassonne is a medieval walled city although on the tour we took in the morning we found that the city walls have layers in them including some Roman parts.
The castle was worth a visit, especially for the views of both the old town and the new!
The Basilique Saint-Nazaire in the old city was beautiful too! It was Carcassonne's only cathedral until the 1800's
On the first day we didn't leave until the sun was setting over the cemetery.
Although I commented that I thought it commercialised, the old city is one of France's most visited tourist attractions and I suppose along with that souvenir shops are a must!
As I am here for T Stands For Tuesday (hosted by the handsome Bleubeard and his lovely owner and friend Elizabeth)I shall take you to the Creperie we went to in the evening - we had eaten a huge Cassoulet at lunch time(sorry no photos) so only wanted something lighter!
The menus were works of art!
I'm not sure how vegetarian this is though!
Our drink was water, hubby insisted he could see quite well in his sun glasses!
I had to wait a while for folk to finish their meals - it was quite busy and as soon as I could I took the next photo!
This was just one day in the Old City, I shall take you to the modern city over the river later this week.
Happy T Day!
Thanks for looking, Chris
