Travel Itinerary May 2017

South West France's most beautiful villages, Medieval towns -- and Paris
Our last trip was May 8th to 23rd, 2017, and was to the South Central part of France, sometimes known as Midi-Pyrenees. It is an exciting part of France which includes Carcassonne, the best preserved Medieval Fortress in Europe, and the nearby Cathar towns and some of the highest and most spectacular chateaux  in France. We also visited some of the most beautiful villages in France --St. Circq La Popie, the favorite village of native French travelers, Montauban, where the Mona Lisa was hidden from the Nazis, Figeac and its Champollion museum and Rosetta Stone mold, Cahors and its outstanding open air market, Castres and its collection of Spanish paintings, and finally we took a peaceful boat ride on the Lot River. Of course, wel finished the trip as always with several days in romantic Paris, and saw some of the off-the-beaten-path favorite Parisian sites. We traveled by car, and paused en route whenever we felt like it. There were no big bus loads of tourists or rigid itineraries and stops - we traveled where we wanted when we wanted.
