Cité de Carcassonne - Visit the Castle and the Ramparts
It is an amazing city to visit. Castle is a must!
Enjoy walking in the surroundings by day and night as the atmosphere is quite different.
For weekends or holidays too many people, so if want to enjoy it needs to take around 4 hours.

We loved it. Easy to get around and everyone very friendly. But one thing is the yellow should be taken off. Ruins the the heritage look.

Cité de Carcassonne - Visit the Castle and the Ramparts
The castle is great all in all. The instructions on how to navigate the inner chambers are not very clear. It would be great if it is numbered carefully so that you do get to see everything. I missed some spot.
Also, modern art and history is very hard to crack but these yellows rings installation is clearly NOT the example! Please remove it. imIt euins the castle’s aesthetics!
