    Buses from train station to old city

    Map with Train Station marked

    On Sundays the regular shuttle bus does not run between the train station and the old city.

    To get a taxi from the old city go to the information desk near the entrance and they will happily call one.

    Streets of Carcassonne

    If you are visiting Carcassonne to go to the Cité Médiévale, don’t worry about transport…..it only takes 20 minutes from the Gare de Cracassonne to the Cité Médiévale by foot….
    If you insist on taking a taxi, there are some outside the train station (Gare) but I really saw many at the Bd Omer Sarraut, one block down from the station.

    Buy the ticket back

    by leosantanajr Written Aug 2, 2005
    Gare Carcassonne

    Hey…this is a good advice….It’s better if you buy your train ticket earlier…..
    I came from Toulouse to Carcassonne by train and decided to buy my ticket back to Toulouse only 30 minutes before taking the train back….The problem was: There was no SNFR store open to sell me the tickets…The only thing I could find was the Billeterie (the automatic ticket machine)….but it would never give me change for 50 euros….It only takes small pieces and I didn’t had 14 euros in coins on me…..I was trapped…Until a good soul decided to change my 50 to some 2 euros coins….

    getting from the train station to the citadel

    by rwlittle Written Apr 9, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to get from the train station to Carcassonne is by taxi. We were staying in a hotel within the citadel, and the taxi delivered us right to the door of the hotel. It was an interesting ride, with the taxi winding its way through the narrow cobblestone roads.

    Carcassonne Airport Bus

    by Waoife Updated Sep 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Get the bus from the airpot into Carcassonne it's quick and cheaper than a taxi. Because it's not a very busy airport the bus timetable is tailored to fit in with most arrivals/departures.

    The best stop to get/on off at is probably Square Gambetta right in the centre of town.

    Fly back in time

    Ryanair plane

    The best way to get to Carcassonne is by Ryanair. There are flights from Londen (Stasted) and Charleroi (in Belgium; south of Brussels). If you are a lucky (or patient, or just fast enough), you should be able to find a very cheap flight.

    The airport is not very far from the city center. You can take a shuttle (for 5 euros at the time), but we shared a taxi for the same price per person - and got comfortably delivered right at the front door of the hotel...

    La Cit��

    La Cité is only accessible on foot... You have to climb a little, so beware of your condition. There are two access-points, one with easy-access (right side) and a more difficult one (left side)... Up to you to choose...:)

    No bus on Sundays in Carcassonne!

    Local bus stop in front of the Cite

    The lady at the tourist booth in the airport forgot it was sunday, gave us a bus schedule, and circled the time for the next bus and pointed out to the place to wait, half and hour later, we were told by other passengers the bus don't run on sundays. The wait for the taxi was quite long, maybe also due to Sunday? A nice ride to our hotel next to the Cite from the airport was 14 Euro.

    Carcassonne has this incredible program of canine carriages. I would imagine that most dogs availing themselves of this mode of transportation tend to carry a few extra pounds.

    Once you reach the Citá/Fortified City, you don't need anything but your feet for two reasons:
    First, it's not too big; second, cars are not allowed.
