Silversea Luxury Cruises To Sete

Sete

The fishing village of Sète serves as gateway to Montpellier, in the North. Other noteworthy destinations in this area include Carcassone, Aigues Mortes, the Abbaye de Fontfroide, and Pezenas. For a look at the real fisherman's life, however, stay right where you are. Sète is the Mediterranean's biggest fishing port. Canals winding through town make it fun to stroll around, and there are a number of good walking paths leading to the beach (about 30 minutes to the west). View more

Although it's small and unspectacular, Plage de la Corniche has calm, pristine waters that are perfect for swimming. For a panoramic view of the area, climb Mont St-Clair or Les Pierres Blanches and pick a beach to settle down on.

Medieval Carcassonne

Take a walk through French history during this picturesque, full-day guided tour of the medieval walled city of Carcassonne. Since the pre-Roman period, a fortified settlement has existed on the hill where Carcassonne now stands. In its present form it is an outstanding example of a medieval fortified town, with its massive defenses encircling the castle and the surrounding buildings, its streets and its fine Gothic cathedral.


Carcassonne

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate two-hour drive along the highway to Carcassonne. Although this majestic site was inhabited as early as the 3rd century B.C., the expansive walled city we see today was gradually built between the 4th and 13th centuries A.D. Arguably, nowhere else in Europe exists a more intact walled city of this importance and in such an impressive setting.


Upon arrival, a guided orientation tour of Carcassonne offers a unique insight into its past and present. This fairy-tale collection of drawbridges, towers and atmospheric cobbled streets is a must-see on any trip through this part of southern France. Its medieval core, the cité, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1997. Although both the Romans and Visigoths were here, Carcassonne really flourished under the well-to-do Trencavel family of the late 12th century.


Ample free time is afforded to have a meal on your own, and browse the myriad of shops and attractions.


At the conclusion of your visit, re-join your guide, return to the coach parking lot and re-board the coach for the approximate two-hour drive back to the pier.



Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking on cobbled slopes, with stairs to negotiate at Carcassonne, and is not recommended for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. The orientation tour is optional, and those not taking part may spend additional free time at their leisure within the walled city. This tour has limited participation, but requires a minimum number of participants per guide to operate.
