    So fascinating, I visited their website and the caves are just out of this world.

    I have always wanted to visit the Lascaux Caves, having learned all about them as a small child. But I didn't know that you were not allowed to visit the real caves any more (I understand why however) nor that no photos would be allowed (not sure I understand that, in a replica - except that it supports my theory that often such bans are to ensure you buy postcards etc rather than to protect valuable paintings etc!)

    Yes, Dee, Lascaux are the most beautiful caves open to public in France (Cosquer and Chauvet are closed to public), and the copy in Lascaux is said to be almost as beautiful as the original; good you took some time driving in the Vezere valley.

    Fascinating! That would interest me too, but then, if the original one is not open to the public, it might be different. Although I understand why they close it.

    Great that you went to Lascaux! We were in the area many years ago, but Lascaux II was not yet finished, so we toured some other caves which were also fascinating.
