One of my favorite places in France from my stay 24 years ago was the walled medieval city of Carcassone. We didn't waste any time going to visit. It wasn't quite as magical this time, maybe because it was freezing cold and windy. We were all cold, but Robbie didn't even bring a jacket, so he really suffered. Or it could be that there was a strike, which meant that the ramparts were closed, and most of the shops too. It felt a little like a ghost town.
