    Car hire reviews in Carcassonne

    Car Hire Carcassonne ReviewsLocated deep in the Languedoc region of the south of France, the medieval city of Carcassonne is without doubt one of the prettiest places in Europe. Located at a height of almost 500 feet, a fortified settlement has existed on its hill since before the Romans and today its massive defences still encircle the city's castle and fine Gothic cathedral. The walls date in part from the Visigothic period but were subsequently strengthened by King Louis IX in 1250 and again by Philip the Bold in 1280. Divided by the river Aude, Carcassonne is actually two cities in one with the much-photographed Cité de Carcassonne on its east bank (whose main entrance is the Porte Narbonnaise) and the Bastide St-Lois (of 13th-century origin) to the west of the river and connected by the medieval Pont Vieux. Containing courtyards, fairy-tale towers and a museum whose artefacts were excavated in the local area, Carcassonne's imposing castle is normally the first place to visit, especially for newcomers, with the views from its ramparts extending as far as the Pyrenees Mountains. Close by, the Saint-Nazaire Basilica features a magnificent interior further enhanced by the most beautiful stained-glass windows in the south of France. Don't miss, also, the Museum of Fine Arts whose permanent collection is of French and Dutch paintings that span the 17th-19th centuries. With your car hire in Carcassonne, you can head into the Black Mountains (Montagne Noire) to see a mythical-looking set of Cathar castles before dropping in on the local vineyards to taste some of the fine wines for which the surrounding Languedoc region is so famous.
