The city is famous for the Cité de Carcassonne, a medieval fortress restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853 and added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997. Consequently, Carcassonne is a vital tourist destination which has a robust wine-making economy.


At only 2 hrs 20 mins by plane from Ireland, we invite you to discover Carcassonne by walking different paths through the famous Canal du Midi, the Medieval city, the vineyards, the riverbanks and lock.


Day 1: Arrive at Carcasonne

The walking spirit in Carcassonne is the desire to discover the Medieval City, the Bastide Saint Louis, the landscape or the banks of the water in a different way: from the edge of the Canal du Midi, the Aude. There’s a lot to explore with your family and friends! The town and the surrounding area can be discovered through the hiking routes like the GR36, which joins the Bastide Saint Louis to the Lac de la Cavayère and passes by the Medieval City, or the GR78, which is the Piémont Pyrénéen route towards Saint-Jacques de Compostelle…

Day 3: Carcasonne

Enjoy your last morning before leaving the South of France.
