hi all! I am planning to take a trip down to barcelona and them up to southern france. Initially, we had planned to spend 2 full days in Carcasonne, but then I talked to somebody who had been to that area and we were informed that Tolouse was a short train ride away! As I have never been to either (or even to south of france),I was wondering if anyone had any advice on this travel plan of mine. I am planning to take a day trip from carcasonne to tolouse...would that make sense? Or should I stay in Tolouse and take a day trip up to Carcasonne instead? It seems like Tolouse is a much bigger city and probably will have cheaper accomodation (which we, as budget tourists really need!) but we really want to see Carcasonne. Any advice as to whether my plan is practical? also, there is a night train going from carcasonne to paris which we want to catch. Any ideas if there is a similar overnight train from tolouse to paris? Thanks in advance for all the help!
