The best of Dordogne in a day: Sarlat Beynac L Roche-Gageac and les Eyzies
In the morning enjoy a guided walking tour of Sarlat one of the most attractive towns in southwestern France. The town also possesses a rich history. The center of the old town consists of flawlessly restored stone buildings and is largely car-free.
Largely ignored in contemporary times Sarlat’s beauty is preserved and is considered one of the best representatives of 14th century France.
Then depart to Beynac the most impressive castle in the Dordogne region followed by a boat ride on the Dordogne in La Roque Gageac.
Castles chateaux and other historical landmarks are sprinkled throughout the region. These landmarks inspire such great historical interest that even a person who has a faint interest in French history will not be bored. But the views are so breathtaking that it does not require an academic to appreciate the beauty of these historical landmarks.
Arrive in Les Eyzies de Tayac and take a guided visit of the National Prehistory Museum. Finally visit Lascaux II—the flawless reproduction of the original Lascaux where you can marvel at primitive yet beautiful cave paintings.
