Plan a Trip to Bayeux
Create your Bayeux itinerary in minutes
Set away from the main France tourist trails, the fascinating town of Bayeux is still an important spot for exploring local history. Being an ancient Norman hub and boasting a favorable location by the sea, Bayeux has long-played one of the leading parts in the destiny of the region. Though today the strategic significance is not its crucial point, the cultural value of Bayeux is hard to overestimate. Any Bayeux exploration is reminiscent of a trip to the Middle Ages as you stroll along the narrow cobbled streets, gloomy yet solemn Gothic churches, surrounded by small half-timbered houses and petite stone bridges. The most vivid evidence of the city's glorious past is the stunning 13th-century Bayeux Cathedral, majestically towering the city and being the most recognizable Bayeux building. Craving for even more outstanding discoveries? Don’t forget to visit the museum housing the 70-meter long Bayeux Tapestry, created in the 11th century and illustrating the Norman conquest.
