Hi we are a couple in our 60's but still healthy and fit and are going to France for the first time. We like medievel towns but we don't want to drive by car as we enjoy the scenery by train and it is more relaxing for older people. My questions are:
1) how to get from Carcassonne to Rocamadour by train
2) is it doable
3) how to get from the train station to the town uphill
4) how many days in Rocamadour
5) can somebody recommend a itinerary for 2 weeks in France by train and/or bus.
We are flying to Nice or Paris (must still decide) end of February (know its out of season but only time we can go) and will like some recommendations for 14 days. We would like to stay at least 2-3 nights in one place and then move on. We like old towns, medievel places and interesting palaces that are reachable by public transport.
Thanks. Emsie Prinsloo
