This tour is more than just an exploration of the medieval Cité de Carcassonne, you actually get to experience three regions: Cabardès, Carcassonne, and Limoux.

Lunch provides you with the opportunity to take part in medieval fare, including the Languedoc’s most famous dish of cassoulet, or one of many other amazing French dishes. The day is full of culture (dating back to the 12th Century), delicious wines, and amazing gourmet food!
