Shore Excursion from Sète to Carcassonne

Discover one the most outstanding examples of a still standing fortified city, going back as far as the 3rd Century AD.

Founded during the Gallo-Roman period, the citadel of Carcassonne derives its reputation from its 3 kilometres long double surrounding walls interspersed by 52 towers. The town has about 2,500 years of history and has seen the Romans, Visigoths, Saracens and Crusaders. It is the most remarkable example of a still standing fortified city, where people still actually live. Take time to do some shopping and stop at the numerous museums that the city has to offer. Immerge yourself in medieval times and enjoy walking through its narrow streets, filled with history and tales of knights and princesses.
