Pick up: 9.00 am, your private English-speaking guide will come to pick you up at your hotel, in Bayeux

The Bayeux Tapestry: first comic in the World !

 

70 meters long, this medieval wonder is protected in a dark gallery to offer good protection and constant temperature and humidity. Embroidered probably in England at the end of the 11th century, this precious document was commissioned by bishop Odo, half-brother of William, duke of Normandy, recently nicknamed William the Conqueror. In 1066, the duke managed to conquer England and was crowned king of England. The Tapestry aims at legitimate the conquest. Basically exhibited in the Bayeux cathedral, the linen deals with the different episodes before, whilst and after the conquest. You will be amazed to see so many information concerning the art of war in the Middle Ages (look at the weapons, the helmets, the armors…), but also concerning daily like (clothes, food, animals). Today listed as UNESCO World Heritage, the Bayeux Tapestry is considered the oldest tapestry in the World.

 

Honfleur, picturesque harbor of Normandy.

As Normand as it is possible to be, Honfleur is undoubtedly the most beautiful little harbor of the Norman coast. Tightened around their Vieux Bassin, the 17th century houses are covered by slate, and offer one of the most beautiful pictures you can take in Normandy. They date back from the time in which Honfleur had strong commercial links with Canada. To defend the entrance of the port, the fortified Lieutenance is proudly keeping an eye at the ocean. The village is full of half-timbered house and narrow streets, perfect to feel its quiet atmosphere. Nearby the market square, you will be amazed by the Ste-Catherine church. Built integrally in wood by ships carpenter after the One Hundred Year war, its bell tower has been erected apart from the church to prevent from any vibration that could weaken its wood structure! Unforgettable.

 

Lunch at your leisure

 

Who wants a piece of cheese ?

For sure, you have noticed that Normandy is full of cows and covered by apple trees. So don’t be surprised if the region produces worldwide famous cheeses as well as cider. A short ride will bring you to the Pays d’Auge, known to be the heart of gourmet Normandy. Green hills, small rural villages in valleys, half-timbered farms : a perfect postcard ! Camembert, Livarot and Pont-L’Evêque are cheeses named after villages names… Taste them, with a sip of cider. Enjoy !
