    Very nice attraction, despite the two stars, which I will explain in what follows. Informative tour of the Lascaux cave, but a bit too modern to actually get the original experience. But a must see nevertheless. And, for a more original experience, do visit Lascaux II, where you will get to see a facsimile of the cave, but with a torchlight and with far more informative explanations. In the Covid context, I actually felt rather unsafe here. The modern centre itself feels a bit unsafe - due to huge groups where people are at less than 1m, and where not everyone wears masks (or they have it under their noses). Nobody is taking care of it, or not as much as needed. Same during the tour: although the guide did say that masks are mandatory, there were one or two people in the group who disobeyed this (with masks under their noses), making everyone feel unsafe. The guide did absolutely nothing about it, although he saw very well what was happening. And talking about the guide - he was continuously rambling about how he speaks too much - although rather informative in the information transmitted, these affirmations such as "I know I speak too much" or "I promise you, once I will tell you one more thing, we'll continue the tour", make the activity a bit heavy. Plus the conclusions at the end... "laisse tomber" ("forget it!"), as the French would say... A good experience nevertheless, that I actually recommend if you do take the Lascaux II tour too, which again is, by far, more attractive and informative and gives you an unforgettable experience, with much more dedicated guides, who actually enjoy what they're doing.

    It is Lascaux 4, there’s also Lascaux 2. But it only say Lascaux, making confuses to visitors. The visit is good. The cave is copied the original one perfectly. The small Musem and the galerie are lovely.

    Lascaux is the most famous of the prehistoric caves, but the cave itself isn't open to the public. Lascaux IV is a full-scale reproduction of the cave -- and touring the reproduction is an...
