Bayeux: World renowned thanks to its famous tapestry dating back to the 1066 invasion of England, UNESCO classified Bayeux is one of the top tourist attractions in Normandy. It is also one of the oldest and best preserved Cities in Normandy with 2000 years of history. A walk through the old centre is a walk through time, from the Romano/Gallic era passing through medieval times, the period of industrial development and on to memories of the landings in 1944 and the arrival of General De Gaulle and his first speech in a liberated France.
La Calvadosienne: The oyster‐farm. This company was founded in 1991 and was one of the first oyster‐farms to be set up in France. Since then, many others have appeared, but at La Calvadosienne they produce a particularly fine salty and fleshy oyster “the Special Norman” which has won many gold medals at the international agricultural show at Paris. You will get to see all the stages involved, and also taste the product. Not to be missed!
