While in Bayeux, we took a day tour of the Normandy Beaches. We are both interested in history and the tour was excellent. The tour was conducted for 8 of us using a minivan, and the driver/guide was extremely well-informed and very interesting. It was a good chance to see some more of the French countryside as well. We throughly enjoyed our stay in Bayeux and the beautiful stained glass windows and cathedrals were an unexpected bonus. Australia is such a young country that we have really enjoyed seeing places that are so old.
