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.

My wife & I, and my parents are going to spend 2 weeks on the Midi Canal next July, starting at Carcassonne and travelling east to the Med.
We've booked a Triton 1050, but we've since Googled this model of boat and it appears to only have one steering wheel (inside). The spec on their website stated that it had 2 steering wheels.
Can anybody clear this up for me, and if it does indeed only have the one - is it going to be a problem?
Thanks in advance, Mike.
Are there many buses out of Carcassonne? My wife and I prefer that to renting a car. Thank you in advance!
If we would rent a car (from Girona where we are flighting this nigt) and would like to vist Carcassonne (and Narbonne maybe?) , is it easy to find a place to park a car at good walking distance? I just try to find towns near the border, and loved the photos of th old town! Looks like "our thing". Is it worth to stop at Narbonne also? Easy to find the centre? We are flying with Ryanair with only handluggage, and I can´t take my huge France map book with me, it´s way too heavy.. We will saty all night at Girona, so we wont go very far.
My husbands cellphone has got a navigator, but looks like it need an internet connection, and that would be too expensive to use. Many car rentals give maps, but I belive they will give only map of north Spain, nor France.
I hope the wifi works well at our hotel, so I can read your answers, if I will get any :) .
Can you please advise of available public transport to the above region on weekdays and also advise of the price fro two adults and two children.
I would like to take one day of the two I will be spending around Carcassonne to see the Cathar Castles (Queribus, Puilaurens, Peyreperteuse ) Has anyone seen a bus tour that goes to at least some of these sites from Carcassonne?

Hi, my husband and I and our 1month+ baby will be travelling to Montpellier soon. We will be in Montpellier for 2.5 weeks due to my husband's work schedule. While we are there, we would like to explore Southern France a little.
We will arrive in Montpellier in the morning after travelling from Asia. We have about 3 nights to go around before we stay put in Montpellier. Is it a good idea to drive to Carcassonne from Montpellier, use it as a base for the next 3 nights and travel out during day time? I am looking at some wine areas as well. Somewhere rustic, with characters, natures...
Thank you in advance.
