Font de Gaume Tickets - Dordogne

Jump to last reply

We got up very early and went to the cave this morning, arriving around 8:15. The ticket office opens at 9:30. When we arrived, there were about 25 people in line. By 8:45, there were many more, probably around 50-60. They only admit 80 people a day. If you're serious about getting tickets, be there early. Today there was only one tour in English at 11:00, and there are only 12 people per tour. We actually did the 10:00 tour in French and it was excellent with a wonderful guide, so I don't know about the English tour. It is a 400 meter hike straight up hill to the cave entrance.

All the way over to Les Eyzies, I was mentally preparing to deal with the disappointment of not getting tickets, so I was truly thrilled that we did. It was a wonderful experience to see the art from 14,000 years ago. Hope many more people can see it before they close this cave, which is a real possibility.
