In 2013 the world famous for it’s original cave paintings Font de Gaume decided they would no longer take online reservations for visits. This meant that you could only get one of the limited 80 tickets per day by queuing VERY early in the hope of getting lucky. This also meant that thousands of travelers from around the world, that came to see the paintings were turned away.. Disappointed to say the least.
Luckily and thankfully Font de Gaume learned from this debacle and as of 2014 their ticket sales are as followed:
- Font de Gaume will still allocate a total of 80 tickets a day
- 2 allocated a tours a day totaling 26 [ 13 per tour ] tickets will be RESERVATION only
- The remaining 54 tickets will be based on 1st come 1st served, sold at Font de Gaume
This new arrangement means that visitors can now turn up at Font de Gaume and purchase a ticket for any day of the week, giving visitors a MUCH better chance of getting to see the cave art.
Remember B&B Ferme de Tayac is less than 5 min. from Font de Gaume
