Most travelers take a trip to Bayeux to see the famed tapestry depicting the legendary Norman Conquest from the 11th century. The tapestry is on display at the city's aptly named Tapestry Museum, but you'll find much more to do in Bayeux than just gaze at an embroidered cloth depicting a historic event. The city makes an ideal jumping off point for visiting numerous World War II sites located in the surrounding area--consider touring the nearby D-Day beaches. Bayeux was among the very first French towns liberated in 1944, and as it surprisingly managed to survive the war practically untouched by destruction, it still contains many medieval buildings and a very nice Gothic cathedral. Use our France journey planning app to arrange the details of your trip to Bayeux and other destinations.
