Visited here with the family, two teenagers who's initial comment was 'is that it?' When you first arrive you can see how that might be the case, the field next to the visitor centre is fenced off and during high season you can only get amongst the stones with a guided tour. However the most notable thing about this site... More

I took the bus (TIM line 1 from Auray) to Carnac. My Rough guide had recommended taking the tire bouchon train to Plouharnel and then a shuttle, but the owner of my hotel said the bus was easier because it was direct and I think she was right. The bus stops in the village, the allignments are then a 15... More

A must see when you are in Carnac. The best way to see them is with the little train that takes you past all the sites. There is a little tourist info place at the parking at Menec that is a bit disappointing. From there, you can walk up to the fence but that's as close as you can get... More

Hey, people love to complain. Carnac is not an easy visit. Yes there are stones. Lots of stones. And people with no wheels, no machines and not even animals to help moved them there thousand of years ago. Not knowing, what they were placed for is a bit of a draw back. And the site is not as impressive as... More

There are several alignments of neolithic stones in Carnac. When you arrive, the largest is fenced off, so you just look at the standing stones going off into the distance. A curiosity, to be sure, and worth a photo, but not worth much more than that. I don't think they let people walk among them.

There is so much neolithic history here that it is easy to get lost for a day. Dolmens here, menhirs there. Fascinating everywhere you look. There is much more that you can see beyond the official tours. Walk around. The buses only let you take pictures through the windows.

I had no idea how impressive the megaliths would be. There were so many of them and they were a a amazing sight. We went mid June and there were not too many people about. Many walks around the stones and guided tours into them twice a day. They give Stonehenge a run for its money

Great parking, free! Excellent facilities (free toilets!) really well looked after site these days, I visited in the early 90's and it wasn't a patch on now better fences and maps too. We walked the whole length of the alignments and had a really good time. Such an amazing place, really the only one like it in the world. Just... More
