Around Toulouse

Medieval Fortress of Carcassonne:

Carcassonne was settled as early as the 6th century BC and later became an important Roman town. It was fortified in the 4th century and was a strategic site in the Middle Ages. It took on its definitive shape in the 13th century with the king’s decision to construct the distinctive double-walled ramparts and extend the castle. The city was restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century and is a testimony to 1,000 years of military architecture and 2,500 years of history. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.

Carcassonne is located within an hour train distance from Toulouse. Return tickets can be purchased directly at the 'Gare Matabiau' train station, with departure times starting from 9AM. Once arrived, a 30 minutes walk through the city center and across the river “l’Aude” will lead you to the medieval fortress where different visit options can be purchased. The full visit can be carried out within one day, and a number of trains are available to return to Toulouse between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM.
