From: Discover France
Published: Sat May 08 2010

Due to the increasing popularity of the region, Discover France today announced the addition of two Dordogne cycling tours to its trip roster. Dordogne is a department of the Aquitaine region in southwest France within which we find Perigord, famous for its foie gras and truffles. Aquitaine also encompasses Bordeaux and the wine country east of Bordeaux.

The two new itineraries are: Dordogne Valley Cycling Tour – Rocamadour and Best of Bordeaux and Dordogne.

Dordogne Valley Cycling Tour – Rocamadour

Travelers on this Dordogne tour get to experience the force of water and the large rivers that have cut the limestone plateau and provided for all the now famous grottos that prehistoric man chose as his canvas. They can visit these grottos, explore the historic aspects of important towns such as Sarlat, La Roque Gageac, Beynac, and Les Eyzies, and the amazing Rocamadour. See chateaux, and stay in charming, superior hotels and country manors. A different Dordogne itinerary but every bit of the fantastic sites that make this region!
