Exploring the Historic Towns of Normandy

A visit to the medieval town of Rouen is an absolute must. The renaissance sections and Place du Vieux-Marche are truly impressive. The infamous town square is where Joan of Arc was burned in 1431. A visit to the Cathedrale Notre-Dame, the 14th century St-Ouen, and St-Godard is definitely worth it. History buffs must make it a point to visit the Musee de Antiquties and the Musee des Beaux-Arts. To sample the fine gastronomy of the region, head to Calvados. The cheese, cider and apple brandy have to be tried. Trouville and Deauville are two popular coastal resorts to try. Normandy will always be remembered in world history for the iconic 1944 D-Day invasion. A visit to the Musee du Debarquement is important to get an insight to the planning that went behind the landing. The Normandy American Cemetery is the final resting place of 9,300 American soldiers who fought valiantly in this epic battle. The monument of Point du Hoc commemorating the American rangers who conquered the cliffs to put an end to the machine gun nests as well as Utah Beach are also must see sites. And to see one of the most stunning sights in France, Mont-St-Michel, you must visit the charming region of Manche.

A visit to the towns of Coutances and Granville are worth it. The latter has a museum which is especially dedicated to the renowned French designer Christian Dior. And to rest those tired muscles, head to the thermal spa of Bagnoles-de-L'Orne and make the most of the variety of spa treatments.
