Create an itinerary including Lascaux
Explore the impressive variety of prehistoric artifacts at Lascaux. The region boasts 25 decorated caves, which have yielded finds from skeletons to significant artwork. Among the masterpieces on the walls are the Venus de Laussel (Marquay), the frieze of horses in high relief of Cap-Blanc, and many detailed wall paintings of Lascaux. Tip: arrive before the site opens to buy tickets, as they sell out fast. Put Lascaux on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Montignac itinerary maker.

  • Amazing place , well worth a visit. Fantastic . Great English guide everything explained in detail. Gives you an understanding of how our ancestors lived. A must to experience 10/10
  • Very informative.However,too much modern concrete, a bit like a prison. We had the french tour as we speak french, but after the 'cave' exhibit we needed the device to understand the cinema and exhibition,even speaking french.Very high entrance cost 21 euros for what is a double copy.The guide Sophie was excellent, and made us feel we were in a real cave,very knowledgeable.For lovers if archaology this is fab,not for children, nothing to do. Overall disappointed.
