      Carcassonne Jan 11, 2017 at 6:22 PM

      We will be spending a few days in Carcassonne in May-June and have things pretty well sorted out. However, it would be nice to hear from you if you have any suggestions for things we should not miss. Also, restaurant recommendations would be welcome for Carcassonne, Narbonne, Beziers and/or Collioure.

      Thanks - this could well be my last question before VT gets the deep six.

      We'll stay from July 23 until August 13 2015 in Ria Sirach and will visit Perpignan several times. Which local guide can show us the secret places of the city, not touched by tourists?

    • Best place to spend the night before road trip to Barcelona: Perpignan or Figueres

      by KathyRoah Online Now Feb 25, 2014 at 1:36 PM

      On a Sunday in May we are taking the train from Avignon to rent a car in Spain to spend 5 days driving to Barcelona. Unfortunately the car rental at the rail station in Figueres is closed on Sunday. Should we stop in Perpignan and spend the night and look around or spend the night in Figueres and pick up a car rental on Monday. Which city is best suited for a one-night stay. We are not interested in the Dali museum.

      Hello, Does anyone may suggest the best and economical way (I think of a bus service, as an example) to get to Perpignan Airport on Tuesday 3rd of September before 9am, please? I also am searching for the train timetable on that route, and it can be slow train, I don't mind. So far, I've found out that the first train arrives Perpignan too late for our flight, and the last one at approximately 7pm day before. :( Any help or advice is appreciated!
