    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...:)

    Luggage locker in Carcassonne

    Reply to Cathy9510usa

    Regarding luggage storage, Note that there is no luggage lokers neither in the airport nor at Carcassonne's train station. But, there is a way to have your luggage kept for a day or 1/2 day at the Hotel de La Bastide which is a mere 150 mtrs from train station. At least that is what I suggest usualy to my guests(I am a cab driver)when ever I drop them to Carcassonne's station several hours before scheduled time. I think there is a flat charge of 3€.
    Enjoy your travelling and our town.

    Ryanair flights to Carcassonne leave early on a Friday and we took a midday flight back on Sunday. This was perfect as we felt we had seen all there was to without a car.
    A bus costing 5 euros is provided to take you to and from several stops in the city. Be aware the airport is minute....1 1/2 carousels,a few seats and a tiny shop.

  • Transport to and from Canal du Midi

    by beejay999 Written Sep 19, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We have cruised on the Canal du Midi several times. One of the problems is getting from the airport (Carcassone or Toulouse) to the cruise bases. The cruise boat companies offer a transfer service but we have found this expensive. We have found a taxi service which is much less expensive and is reliable for up to 6 persons plus baggage. This year we travelled from Carcassone Airport to Castelnaudary and Port Cassafieres (Portiragnes) to Carcassonne Airport, 6 persons plus bags for half the price asked for transfers by the boat company. Also the taxi company speak English.

    We took the train from Toulouse for our day trip. TGV in one direction. A regional express going back. Both were on time and comfortable. Journey times were about the same - 40 minutes - so I’m guessing it isn’t a special TGV track on that route.
    It cost about €40 each, but we bought our tickets just before we left and I suspect it would have saved money to buy in advance.
    The station is just north of the Ville Basse, and it’s an easy walk from the station to the Cité.
    Trains run every hour between Toulouse and Carcassonne.
    The Canal du Midi passes right by the front of the station, which is pleasant even in March. Must be better in the summer months.

    Travelling with (young) kids.

    by Jerelis Written Sep 12, 2011
    Having a stop in Carcassonne.

    Are you nervous about taking your baby or child on a plane trip? You aren't alone, most parents are nervous about it. We have moved with Iris and Sam Tarragona Corfu by plane this holiday and drove some distances by car on the island itself and we learned a few things that hopefully will help you.

    General:
    Bring books, old favorite toys and new surprise toys. Do remember that balls are not a good idea as they can end up anywhere! Our best buys were definitely books, especially sticker books are great! They can peel the stickers off, are glossy, have thick pages to turn easy, have bright colours and come in endless subjects. They're a nice break from the other books your child might be tired of, too. Put aside fears of setting poor eating habits, and bring on the snacks! We told Iris: “Welcome to the world of boredom eating."

    Plane:
    If your child is big ask for earplugs as soon as you board the aircraft. Make use of them for take-off then save them for landing as the crew may not have any fresh ones left by then. Also let them eat candies, this helps the kids tremendously if they don't know how to pop their ears.

    Car:
    Toy bars meant for stroller use are a big help in the car, as they often feature toys plus a snack cup, and are big and easy for you to grab from the front seat for refills. During the car trip it’s always a good idea to play a game and sing some songs. It sounds rather easy, but it does work!

    Finally:
    We only have one last statement! Just do it! Don’t be afraid that it might go wrong. We have learned this, because we have been travelling with Iris from the beginning. She was only 6 weeks young when we had our first short vacation and stayed in a hotel. Iris has been used to it rather fast and (maybe because of it) has always been an easy kid to get along with.

    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….

    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.

    The best way with no doubt is by car...from France or Spain taking the motorway is really easy and closer to everywhere..from BCN just 3 hours split Carassone.
