Caen with over 1000 years of history, from William the Conqueror to the Battle of Normandy, Caen has built up an extraordinary architectural and historical heritage.
The two abbeys, jewel of Norman architecture and symbol of love between William and Mathilda, and the castle, one of the largest fortresses in Europe. Lunch in Bayeux.
The Medieval city of Bayeux, located in the heart of the D-Day Landing beaches, is a genuine history book in its own right…
Walking tour from the Notre Dame Cathedral, a masterpiece of Norman Roman and Gothic art, to the famous Bayeux Tapestry, listed on UNESCO’s Memory of the World register and bearing fine witness to the prosperous Duchy of Normandy.
A unique masterpiece in the world, the Bayeux Tapestry is actually an embroidery made from wool on a linen canvas during the 11th century. 70 m long and 50 cm high, it recounts – simply but with a wealth of detail – how and why William the Conqueror conquered England on October 14, 1066.
Time to stroll through the narrow paved streets of Bayeux in the historic center of town to admire its many 17th and 18th century town houses.
