We are a middle aged couple planning a trip to the Carcassonne area in September. Can anyone advise us of the best towns etc. to visit in this region we will be using public transport. Are Toulouse and Montpellier worth a visit?
Toulouse and Montpelier are both worth visiting and are about an hour away by train. Consider Béziers, Narbonne, Sète and Perpignan. Public transport esp buses in the Carcassonne area is very poor. It’s much, much better to hire a car from the airport for more local trips.
