With more than 2,000 years of history tucked under its belt, Limoges has much to offer to curious visitors…
Delve into the sands of time on your next city break when you book flights to Limoges with TravelSupermarket.
Founded by Roman Emperor Augustus in 10BC (when it went by the name of Augustoritum), Limoges has reinvented itself time after time, finding most success as a producer of fine porcelain after huge deposits of kaolin clay were unearthed near the city in 1768. Any porcelain aficionado has a piece of Limoges in their cabinet. Discover its beauty at the Adrien Dubouché National Porcelain Museum in Limoges or start your own collection – a number of factories still produce delicate dinnerware and head-turning tea sets.
If you’d rather scrape plates clean than put them on display, amble among the medieval streets of La Cité quarter, where Saint-Etienne’s Cathedral stands rock solid among the many half-timbered buildings, and find one of the city’s fantastic eateries.
Other attractions include the handsome Limoges-Bénédictins railway station, the Fine Arts Museum, and the Museum of the Resistance, which tells tales of Limoges during the Second World War.
Tempted by Limoges? We don’t blame you. Look for Limoges flights with TravelSupermarket and get your next city break in the bag.

Stay a step ahead, travel-planning superhero, and you won’t be flustered when you see the lack of airport transportation…
Flights to Limoges from UK airports land at Limoges-Bellegarde Airport (LIG), on the edge of the city.
It’s a good thing it’s close, as taxis and car rental are your only options here; there are no bus or train services at Limoges Airport.
A flat rate of 24 euros applies to taxi journeys between the airport and the railway station (it’s 33 euros between 7pm and 8am, on Sundays and on bank holidays). This is the fee regardless of the number of passengers, so sharing will save you money.
Alternatively, pre-book car hire to collect upon arrival at Limoges Airport and get about at your own pace. There are lots of attractive, historic towns close to Limoges, making car hire a sound investment for eager sightseers.
