Andorra la Vella, Andorra

Andorra la Vella ©
Tucked high in the Pyrenees and home to fewer than 65,000 residents, Andorra La Vella seems at first an unlikely tourist hotspot.

There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Esglesia de Sant Miquel d'Engolasters, see the interesting displays at Museu Casa d'Areny-Plandolit, trek along Estany de la Nou, and admire the landmark architecture of Casa de la Vall.

Carcassonne, France

Carcassonne ©
Best known as a fortified town, Carcassonne is a walled city that provided the inspiration for the castle in Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" and the location for many scenes in Kevin Costner's movie "Robin Hood." For a daily dose of excitement, medieval jousting tournaments are held twice per day between the two walls--while this may sound like a typical touristy show, it's actually an entertaining display of combative competition and horsemanship.
On the 30th (Tue), take in the views from Le Pont Vieux (The Old Bridge), step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal, then steep yourself in history at Cathar Castles, then pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Nazaire, and finally take an in-depth tour of Musee De L'ecole.

For where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Carcassonne trip planning website.

Do a combination of bus and train from Andorra la Vella to Carcassonne in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of car and train; or take a bus.
