Sète is the closest cruise stop to Carcassonne, a perfectly preserved castle/town.Prevented from going there by the crowds on Bastille Day we spent the day in Sète. The part easily reached from the port looks like a lovely village. Sète has a few canals , one of which has restaurants and shops lining the canal. The food is primarily fresh fish , salads and wine .The town has several streets lined with shops (linens) and clothing and a large market with produce , all kinds of Provencal foods, tablecloths ,etc. Since it was Bastille Day , they had a jousting tournament performed on the canal. It was fun and amazing.We thoroughly enjoyed it .

A Lovely surprise!,TripAdvisor Review
