- Visit the city of Toulouse and lose yourself in the warmth of its pink stone landmarks, vast plaza and glorious St. Sernin Basilica.
- Embrace the quaint town of Castres.
- Venture to the beautiful walled city of Carcassonne, the largest fortress in Europe, and see the Château Comtal and Saint-Nazaire Basilica, known for its brilliant stained glass.
