Falaise
Falaise is a town (population 9,000) on the Ante River in the French region of Lower Normandy, famous as the birthplace of William the Conquerer and the scene of the fierce fighting of August 1944 associated with the Allied "breakout" from the "Falaise pocket" that built up after the D-Day landings, to drive towards Paris during the Western campaign against the German occupation.

In August 1944, two German armies were encircled and destroyed by the British 2nd Army in their attempt to breakout of the "Falaise pocket" (also known as the "Falaise gap").
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Tue): soar above the sights with Montgolfieres de Falaise.

To find traveler tips, maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Falaise travel route planner.

Bayeux to Falaise is an approximately 1-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of train and bus. In July, daily temperatures in Falaise can reach 72°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Tue) so you can drive back home.
