We visited during the Saturday market day. Very busy with many tourists and locals. Would love to return on a non market day. Lovely medieval city center.

If you are in Dordogne, the old town of Sarlat-la-Caneda is a must. Its a remarkabel mid evil town that is restored to perfection. Lot's of narrow streets, beautiful old houses, etc. Very many tourists.

The town comes to life on market days and is also very popular. Lots of photo opportunities in the quaint cobbled streets of the old town. Plenty of places to eat or get a drink. Lots of quaint shops. Can be on the pricey side....More

An amazing maze of little streets, shops and restaurants, dating back many hundreds of years, one of the most interesting and pleasant places that we have ever visited in France. The Saturday market is simply amazing with hundreds of stalls selling quality foods, wines, clothing...More

Easiest (and free) is to park in rue Camille Claudel just off avenue de Selves (a main artery into Sarlat) and then it's an easy stroll into the old centre.
