Full day tour to Lascaux brand new International center, discovering the UNESCO sites of the Vezere Valley


A journey in Dordogne is a journey back in the past. And which past: Prehistoric times!
I will make sure you experience the best of Perigord culture and history with the benefit of a tailor-made programme. While driving along the Unesco site of the Vezere Valley, focus on the conditions of existence of Cro-Magnon, his everyday life and the numerous tracks remaining nowadays.
As a highlight of the day, we will spend time discovering the new Lascaux International Center for cave paintings(opened on Dec. 2016)an outstanding replica of most paintings of the original cave. Experience the best technology to fully understand the "how" and try to answer the "why" of those 20 000 years old paintings.
Enjoy lunch in a charming village along the Vezere, for either a gourmet menu or a local products experience. In the afternoon, stop pictures along Maison Forte de Reignac, Grand Roc dwellings, a stroll in Les Eyzies "Capital of Prehistoric Times"or Rouffignac cave.
I remain flexible to adapt on site.
