2-Hour Private Walking Tour of Carcassonne

3. 2-Hour Private Walking Tour of Carcassonne

The walled city of Carcassonne in Languedoc is world renowned as a spectacular fortified medieval city. But this rocky spur has been occupied since the 6th-Century BC, first as a Gallic settlement and later as a fortified Roman city. The Visigoths seized the city in the 5th-Century, and were followed by the Saracens, who remained in control for a mere 30 years before the Francs expelled them. Restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th-Century, the city fortress was consecrated in 1997 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while the former military enclosure of the lower town’s "La Bastide Saint-Louis" is listed as a conservation area. Take a 2-hour private walking tour, personalized to your own schedule and rhythm, visiting the sights you would like to visit. Explore medieval architecture and discover the rich culture that has inspired poets and writers, including William Faulkner. The city is divided into 2 parts; the town and the famous Cité de Carcassonne. Typically we pay more attention to the Cité, but if you would like to visit the town the tour can be customized to suit. Discover the castle and ramparts at the heart of the medieval city; explore the Cathedral and the Basilica of Saint Nazaire; and visit la porte Narbonnaise, which was the principal entrance to the Cité. A dream like destination with a romantic ambience, the tour is tailor-made to enchant you.

What people are saying about Languedoc-Roussillon

We absolutely loved this tour - the variety of places we visited, the beauty of both the towns and the landscapes. The pace was perfect.... we weren't rushed and were able to linger in places of particular interest. I can't believe we covered so much in one day, yet still felt energised at the end of the trip. We were very impressed with our guide David who shifted effortlessly between english and french. He was charming and knowledgeable and very generous with his time.

Gwen was a wonderful guide. She was able to keep me engaged in the history of Carcassonne, including the history of the areas and how they related to Carcassonne. I would love to hire her for future tours!

Our guide, Nathalie, was very friendly and helpful. She has a lot of local knowledge and a lot of historical knowledge. It was a very enjoyable tour.

Wir fanden das Spiel richtig toll. Auf jeden Fall etwas neues. die Krimis waren spannend und die auflösungen sehr kreativ.

WoW Nathalie is really interesting and funny. I recommend it without hesitation
