Travel Tips from people who've been to Bayeux

Bayeux is the perfect spot from where you can visit the D-Day sites and of course it is in itself worth a visit. It has everything you might need as a tourist, campings, numerous hotels, good restaurants and a few really nice sites. Don't forget to visit the Tapestery, even though it is a bit expensive (I paid 7,80 euro) it is well worth a visit.

It also has a really good tourist information centre in the middle of the old town where they can provide any kind of information and help arrange visits to the landing sites, very handy if you don't have you're own transport.

Bring your sanitizer wipes when viewing the Bayeux tapestry. The little hand held tour guide things are greased up with foundation and sweat. lovely on a particularly warm day. Also it helps to not go out drinking the night before you visit in regards to retention of the actual history. at least it was pretty...
