Rue Trivalle is where you will find an exhibition inside the Cultural centre containing a memorial for former soldiers. Open Monday to Saturday you can view items such as documents, costumes and objects all relating to soldiers of the country.

For a unique way to view the city you can opt to take a boat trip or guided tour.

Carcassonne is one of the most popular tourist attractions in France because this walled city retains its former glory and is incredibly beautiful, especially at night. Carcassonne is divided between the fortified city of Carcassonne and the lower village or Ville Basse.

The city was built with a concentric ring of outer walls to prevent siege attacks. Nearby is an old bridge and other sights in the city worth seeing include the church and basilica. If you plan to rent car hire in Carcassonne during the busy summer months then be aware that vehicles get booked up very quickly.
