Wander round the stones and enjoy a crepe at the café. Well worth a visit if in the area. Children under 14 will be bored and unappreciative after fifteen minutes tho.

Since 20 years it is no longer possible to walk between the menhirs during the peak season. So you have to book a guided tour. We had a wonderful guide (clearly a real archeologist), that clearly approached the whole thing in a very rational way...More

I had no idea of the length of this site. We started walking it on a hot summer day and before long, I went back for the car. The alignment and the presence of the 3000 stones was impressive. So much industry by a people...More

I love these stones more then England's Not sure if it is the sea air or just the feeling you get when you stand among them

Only saw the stones from the tourist train from carnac centre limited time meant we were unable to get off the train to view the stones nearer or visit the information centre

You can;t visit them on your own only with a guided tour. Also during our visit there was a light and sound show which was really crap and that's not only our opinion.Overall it's not the most interesting place to visit.

The Megaliths of Carnac are so wonderful to view. This park is very accessible, a walkway circles the stones at a very close distance to them. We were unaware of the history of this area and found the whole experience fascinating and educational. There are...More

Very impressive collection of thousands of stones. Sadly, you can't get too close to most of them. Well worth the visit if Stonehenge, Avebury and Castlerigg circles inspire you. This is on a much larger scale.

Nearly 5km of linear alignments. What were they at? This took a lot of time and effort-the mystery of prehistory!

It is true you have to pay to walk among the stone. You can see them from the parking lot also (for free). There are guided walking tours about every 20 minutes, I would think they are in English on request. When I was there... More

Yes, it is true that everything has been fenced off. Probably necessary in order to protect the vegetation. So you cannot actually touch the menhirs. But when you walk along the fences, you can see everything, the alignments... More

Hi Rosemary! Well, to have a lovely tour around the standing stones I will definitely advise you the tour by train. First because it is exhaustive and you will see the alignments from close range. Then because the... More
