Carcassonne, a beautiful medieval city from the 13th century was full of towers, turrets, and cobblestone alleys. We stayed at a lovely, small B&B within the city walls. Staying within the walls for three nights gave us the pleasure of experiencing the days and evenings walking the most amazing cobblestone streets and viewing the sights of the bustling shops and history around every corner. The old part of Carcassonne is referred to as The Cite'. It is surrounded by a wall and mote, just like we have all read in history books. The Cite' has had a wide history of military attacks and has been rebuilt after being destroyed by fire. It was like stepping into a dream and feeling a small bit of what it would have felt to live in a different time.
