We provide advice and suggestions about the surroundings and the places of interest in Carcassonne and its region. The medieval Citadel (“la Cité”) and the Canal du Midi (the South Canal) are both enlisted as UNESCO heritage sites, not to be missed.

In summertime Carcassonne is full of animation and activities with its music festival, the internationally renowned 14th of July firework attracting up to 800 000 people, the weekly market in the Bastide (downtown) and a variety of organised visits.

At your arrival we provide you with flyers and brochures of places to visit and activities to participate in.
