You follow the signs to La Cité and park at the dessignated payed parking. IMO there is only one point of interest and that is the Cité itself. For restaurants, try TripAdvisor :) (the restaurant tab at the top of the forum).

It is a long way!

I suggest that there are just as good and rewarding places nearer to Arles than Carcassone.

I agree. That's a heckuva daytrip unless you're a huge fan of Viollet-le-Duc.

I agree, Carcassonne is worth visiting, but only if you are closer or stay overnight. It is a super long day trip from Arles and you wouldn't have that much time to visit other than the tourist street, and it not that interesting. Stay over in a nearby village one night...lots to choose from.
