We rented a home from Airbnb for a week so that my husband could continue working while also having enough time to enjoy the area.
Our first adventure was to check out Carcassonne. It was the 4th city (after Paris, Strasbourg, and Avignon) to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The area was originally occupied in the 7th century BC and later was colonized by the early Romans. In the Middle Ages, Carcassonne was fought for and won by several different people, including Charlemagne. It later came under French rule in the 1200’s.
