    Carcassonne Things to Do

    The Cathedral in the Cite within the Castle walls is a wonderful church with lots of goth, stained glass, wild water spouts and fine sculptures. The cathedral as it stands dates from the 11th Century, however, there is evidence of a church on this spot as far back as the 6th-7th Century. Some of the tombs are dated as far back as 1266.

    Le Cap d'Agde Tourist Traps

    In the harbor/Port:Everywhere you see signs with '1 kg. Moules and Frites' for just € 8,00 per person. That sounds cheap (well.. in Cap d'Agde it is..) but first take a look at the chart before you sit down.. in some cases we payed more than € 6,50 for a Coca Cola or a beer. The places with life music are the most expensive to drink something, if...
