La Cite, Carcassonne's UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site, is an atmospheric medieval walled city on the banks of the Aude. Restaurants and stores are scattered among a wealth of winding cobbled streets, turrets and towers. On the other side of the Aude, La Bastide neighborhood offers all the charms of a French country town, complete with a Saturday market. While driving is an option in La Bastide, catch the free shuttle to La Cite and walk. Don't miss Carcassonne Castle or Chateau de Peyreperteuse.
