Carcassonne, Tour de France and Bastille Day

Jump to last reply

We're staying in Le Plan de la Tour for 14 days, arriving on July 2, 2016. We want to work in a trip to visit Carcassonne during our stay and I just discovered that Stage 11 of this year's Tour de France will be Carcassonne to Montpelier on July 13th. My husband is an avid cyclist and follows this race (we have been at the finish in Paris before) and he would LOVE to see some of the cyclists race through this stage. I could use help pulling together an itinerary that would involve one or two over-night stays somewhere between our place in the Riviera (near St. Maxime) and Carcassonne and some interesting sights in between. We have a rental car and ideally, I'd also like to figure out where we might enjoy some Bastille Day activities (i.e., Fireworks) on 7/14. So it sounds like we may have to figure out 2 overnight stops to work in being in Carcassonne for the Tour de France and Bastille Day. What are your suggestions? We also have on our list for this year's trip other areas in Provence such as Avignon, Arles if this helps. We love touring small villages, love architecture, art, food, markets and history. I appreciate your help!
