We went in June of 2014. One night wasn't enough. It was very quaint and all of these narrow stone streets wound around nooks and corners where there were several shops and bistros to explore. I am seriously thinking of a week in France at just this place in the future. It would be wonderful to spend a few days taking your time exploring instead of rushing around. Cite de Carcassonne was my favorite place in France and I saw quite a bit of the country while there. It's top notch and very quaint in a modern medieval way. I strongly recommend at least two nights there. You'll need two nights and three days to do it justice. There's a great cemetery outside the castle gates that I would have loved to walk through but didn't have enough time. One of the best places I've ever been.

La cite de Carcassonne est superbe ! Les remparts sont très jolie , nous avons pu les faites en un petit tour de train . Le midi , nous avons mange dans un petit restaurant médiéval très bon . Les saussices était faites au feu de bois ! Le cassoulet avait l'aire très bon. Puis l'après midi , nous avons regarde un spectacle de chevaliers d'1h00 dans la cite . Puis nous avons fini par faire le tour de la cite , qui nous montrer une belle vue de la ville de Carcassonne . En tout cas , c'était une très bonne journée !

magnifique et rare. La visite des remparts est libre mais plusieurs activités nécessitent une entrée payante non négligeable et les parkings sont chers. mais étant le seul attrait touristique de Carcassonne, il fallait s'y attendre. Attention, couvrez vous en hiver, le vent y est glacial!

Best preserved medieval town in Europe. Arrived late in the day which meant parking was a struggle as most of the provided locally situated ones were full, just bear that in mind and avoid going on a Saturday. We did & it was still heaving. Very well preserved with unique restored features to the walls, most of the city walls are free to walk around and worth seeing as they are impressive. You pay to access the turrets or higher parts of the ramparts, passed that opportunity up. Had a small lunch coffee & crepes for the kids. Most places are doing a roaring trade so struggled to get a seat at cheaper establishment, hovered around to get a seat. The word artisan seems to be used frequently to describe an establishments product even if its still candy at the end of the day. Lots of opportunity to get some impressive shots of this photogenic landmark. Worth visiting if you get the opportunity...

This is not my favorite fortified city, but it is very nice. Lots of cute shops, restaurants, bars, cafes... If you are passing by this area it is a stop you should definitely make.
