Located in Normandy, it is close to both the Normandy Beaches and other World War II memorials. For history buffs, it is a great place to visit..not only for the Bayeux tapestry in the museum but two other museums in the city as well: Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy and the MAHB – Baron Gérard Museum of Art and History. And it has a beautiful Cathedral dominating the center of the city.
