This little tourist train seems to get a slating in the reviews here but if you want to avoid a steep climb, are tired at the end if a busy day, have kids or buggies or it's very hot then this is definitely worth it!!!

Park at the bottom of Rocamadour and catch train up and down to the first level. Children welcome and with a pushchair. Under 5's free so don't forget to state their ages.

We caught the train because we thought it would save us time getting to the village. However in hindsight it would have been better to get the exercise and walk to the top. Once you wait for the train to arrive it's hardly a long...More
