  1. I loved Caracasonne. Despite having a disgusting cold from the moment I arrived, it was a beautiful little town with a stunning castle. If anyone’s in the region, is definitely recommend they visit.

    • Glad you had such a great visit. We found that Rick Steve’s advice about avoiding the hordes of tourists was correct…arrive late in the afternoon just as the tour buses are starting to depart. Wander the city at dusk and enjoy a nice dinner, take your night photos of the castle and get up early before the crowds descend for any last photo taking or shopping opportunities.
