We will be visiting France in May and have the choice of visiting one of the caves. Which would you choose?
I haven't seen 2, but here is a good article. https://archaeology-travel.com/reviews/is-lascaux-4-better-than-lascaux-2/
I can confirm that 4 is spectacular.
Just read this article this morning, trying to make up my mind. Thank you!
I am leaning towards 4 but wonder what others have to say.
L4 is a reproduction of more of the caves.
"If anything, the video of Lascaux 4 repelled me because of all of its "interactive" special effects."
I visited Lascaux 4 last October. I have not watched the video Kerouac refers to but as far as I can remember all the video special effects are at the end of the tour and in an area separate from the part where the paintings have been recreated. I don't remember any special effects on the guided tour when viewing the paintings.
I've not been to 2 as it was not open last fall so my tour just did 4.
Are you going to any other caves in the area?
