Bayeux ©
Most travelers take a trip to Bayeux to see the famed tapestry depicting the legendary Norman Conquest from the 11th century.
Explore hidden gems such as Pegasus Bridge and Musee de la Batterie de Merville. Change things up with these side-trips from Bayeux: La Batterie d'Azeville (Azeville gun battery) (in Azeville), Pegasus Memorial (in Ranville) and Sainte-Mere-Eglise (Church of Sainte-Mère-Église & La Fiere Bridge and Iron Mike Monument). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Musee Baron Gerard, explore the different monuments and memorials at Cimetiere Militaire Allemand de La Cambe, and admire the masterpieces at Musee de la Tapisserie de Bayeux.
