Le Petit Train de Rocamadour, Rocamadour

Train tour from the car park to the centre of Rocamadour

featured in Guides & tours

In true French style Le Petit Train will take you on your short journey from the bottom of Rocamadour to the town centre above you.

During the day the train acts like more of a convenient mode of transport between the valley parking and the medieval city. The parking at the bottom of Rocamadour is free and the added convenience of the train to take you higher up into the town is certainly a bonus for those who have young children or reduced mobility. Although not a long trip the train runs every 15 minutes meaning that you will arrive at your destination in no time. If you don't fancy the walk down either then you can buy a return ticket.

Alternatively, Le Petit Train de Rocamadour also offers an evening excursion. Your chance to discover the illuminated site of Rocamadour with historical commentary (in French, English, Spanish, Japanese, German and Dutch).

Worth knowing

There are plenty more stairs to be climbed from the centre of Rocamadour so don't feel guilty about taking the train for this first section!

Who should go

This is a convenient mode of transport from the valley parking to the town centre for those with young children, the elderly or those with reduced mobility. The summer months can be extremely hot so this offers a welcome break for those who do not want to attempt a steep climb in te middle of the day.
