Best known for its discovery of the first five skeletons of Cro-Magnons, the earliest known examples of Homo sapiens sapiens, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil is home to the rock shelter that held skeletons included a fetus, and remarkably modern looking skulls with a much rounder shape than the earlier Neanderthal.
Venture out of the city with trips to Les Gabares Norbert (in La Roque-Gageac), Chateau de Castelnaud (in Castelnaud-la-Chapelle) and Eyrignac et ses Jardins en Dordogne (in Salignac-Eyvigues). Spend the 4th (Fri) delving into the displays at Musee National de Prehistoire. The adventure continues: stroll around Les Jardins de Marqueyssac, explore the historical opulence of Chateau de Beynac, make a trip to Roque Saint-Christophe Fort et Cite Troglodytiques, and contemplate the long history of Chateau de Commarque.
