Does anyone know how to get to Carcassone from Montelimar by rail?

Thanks

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

is the easiest site to use to find almost all European train times and etails in English.

You can make the journey with 1 or more changes, depending on train departure time. Journey takes around 4.5 - 5 hours. Trains run roughly hourly, although there is a longer gap between 8.06 and 11.34.

For fares it's best to look at

Although it's all in French it's easy enough to use. You do not need to buy your ticket in advance online, though you may try to do so if you wish.

Travel Tips for Carcassonne

How to get there...

by Peter_P

Because it's the largest medieval city still intact, it's a must-do whenever you are in the region.
It's somewhat become a touristic place of cource, but the site is beautiful and well-kept Walking thrue the small streets, buying some souvenirs, buying some local crafts, eating a local speciality... it's all in the package here :-)

La cité

by Klod5

Faite de lignes noires et pures qui se décomposent sur les saisons, la silhouette de la cité est vite devenue objet de prédilection pour les dessinateurs et les graveurs qui y trouvaient un bon sujet pour expérimenter leurs diverses techniques : bois gravés de Achille Rouquet, fusains et dessins à la plume de Albert Robida, eaux-fortes de R. Fabrey… Made of black and pure lines that decompose themselves on the seasons, the silhouette of the city became quickly object of predilection for the drawers and the engravers that found a good topic there to experiment their various techniques : wood engraved of Achille Rouquet, charcoals and drawings to the feather of Albert Robida, aqua fortis of R. Fabrey…

Make sure you pack enough French phrases!!!

French dictionary/phrase book, Carcassonne is not Paris, we thought French people don't like to speak English in Paris, we found out most French people in Carcassonne DO NOT speak English period. Locals are freindly, but it's such a frustrating feeling, when you could not understand a word of the nice multilingual conversations you are carrying on, hopefully it'll change, I am taking French class now.

I think one of the nice folks on the right of the pics, asked me if I want to join them for a game of croquet, but other then "Bonjour, Monsieur!" all I can do is smile. Talking about communications problem.

Place du Grand Puits

by leics

This is the oldest well in La Cite (there are 22 altogether), but it would be very easy to miss (I almost did). It may well date from the Roman occupation of the site and, according to legend, the Visigoths hid their treasure from Solomon's temple in it. Strangely, the water has often been said to be unfit for human consumption!

Drive along the Canal du Midi and stop for lunch

by Beausoleil about Auberge de l’Arbousier

This is a bit further from Carcassonne but worth the trip and a delightful drive along the Canal du Midi. If the day is pleasant, you can sit outside and watch the canal boats go slowly by and see people and bicycles on the adjacent canal path.

There is no more perfect way to enjoy a delightful lunch on a sunny afternoon . . . and if it's raining, the inside is cozy and the French doors allow the same view in warm comfort.

We had a gite next door and enjoyed the Auberge de l'Arbousier several times during our stay. The next time we'll stay in the Auberge since the gite left much to be desired. Here's my journal entry for the day:

"Walked back to Auberge de l’Arbousier for dinner and it’s a winner. We got seats looking out onto the canal and both of us ordered the 22 euro menu. We got kirs to celebrate our arrival and then ordered the asparagus salad as a starter. Quelle surprise . . . the asparagus was green. In France it’s usually white. This was not only green, it was warm asparagus, absolutely tender, with a Parmesan disk and a cold tomato confit that was delicious.

Ed ordered salmon with lentils as his entrée and I got chicken with a ratatouille. Both were excellent and the bread was the best we’ve had so far on this trip. Our cheese course was three tiny chunks of excellent cheese followed by a dessert course of creamy chocolate mousse . . . all with a delightful Minervoise white wine . . . and . . . my favorite Lavazza Italian coffee. Great dinner.
