Cahors

Getting Here

If you're taking a train to Cahors you'll arrive at the station (08–36–35–35–35) on Place Jouinot Gambetta from Paris's Gare d'Austerlitz in around five hours for about €68 one-way. Trains run frequently between Toulouse and Cahors, and the shuttle (€5) between Toulouse airport and the city's bus station (next door to the train station) runs every 20 minutes, so you should consider flying into Toulouse as opposed to Bergerac, from which it is difficult to reach Cahors—or even into the regional airport of Brive La Gaillarde (www.airlinair.com) and then heading south to Cahors. Buses leave from the train station and, as in the rest of the Dordogne, can be erratic, although, on the plus side, they cost only €2 a trip.
