Bayeux, it is not only housing a tapestry, it is so much more
Bayeux is a touristic little city located in Normandy, northwestern France. With some 13 000 inhabitants, the town, despite the damages of World War II in the region, can boast about possessing an important cultural and architectural heritage.
Bayeux is world-famous for preserving its precious 11th century tapestry, also called Queen Mathilde Tapestry, which is 70 meters long!
Go to explore it and let you count the history of the conquest of England by William the Conqueror. In the charming centre, do not miss the cathedral Notre Dame of Bayeux, dedicated in 1077 in the presence of William the Conqueror, and embellished during the 13th and 15th century. Head the Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum and discover what happened the days after the terrible battle.
You will also find in Bayeux the largest british military cemetery of France, and the conservatory of lace, aiming for conserving this lacemaker craft tradition.

For 50 euro, I got exactly what I expected. Mildly comfortable seats and a decent facility. If I needed to use the train again, I would have no problem booking with Rail Europe.

Once you get bearings for how each Paris train station goes to different parts of the country it is easy to use rail Europe to go anywhere. Our trip was simple and we had pdf files sent to us to print before our trip.

Very nice train ride and quick. Made my connection in Caen to Bayeux with plenty of time. Great ride for the money.
- "nice train trip to normandy!" Astrid e. 13/04/2015
Wonderful experience to take the intercity train from Paris St Lazare to Normandy and back! Much to prefer compared to connecting flights, as we got to see the tranquil countryside and was very comfortably seated as we had reserved seats on the internet! Very good value for money. 5 girls on holiday
- "Train was nice, finding it..." Marc h. 12/04/2015
I will say up front that neither my wife nor I speak any French, but when we got to the train station we found our trip listed, but no platform. There was "Attention..." shown after the trip listing, which made us a bit nervous, especially since we had no idea what the remainder of the message said. We found a very nice person who translated for us (a couple of the carriages were not going to the final destination) and assured us we were waiting in the correct location. Once aboard, all was good - quick trip and quite comfortable and a very nice couple sitting behind us made sure we got off at the right stop.
