A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. Wander through the Rue des Consuls in Sarlat, a street full of 13th-16th century mansions.
  • 2. Visit Rocamadour, home to the "Grand Escalier," a 216-step staircase that pilgrims used to ascend on their knees.
  • 3. Sink your teeth into confit de canard, a mouth-watering dish of duck, fried in its own fat, and often served with potatoes. Add a glass of local Bergerac and bon appetit!
