Normandy Beaches Half-Day Trip from Bayeux

791 reviews
The D-Day landing beaches and WWII battlefields of Normandy lie just north of Bayeux along the English Channel coast. This half-day tour takes in some of the most important sites, including Omaha Beach, one of the five landing sites; Pointe du Hoc, one of the principal German fortifications; and the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, where thousands of US soldiers are buried.

This piece of world heritage is a MUST SEE when in Normandy. It is definitely worth the visit. The free audio guide explains all scenes, depicted on the carpet. The overall presentation is really good. Keep in mid that this piece of embroidery is 1000 (one thousand) years old. The only downside - no photos allowed. PS: Open also during COVID-19

A visit to the famous Bayeux tapestry is also highly recommended during Corona. Perhaps even extra, more distance is kept and that means that you can view everything very well and with the audio you get a good explanation, which makes the whole even more beautiful.

no online reservation system in corona-times and closed for 1.5 hours over lunch. So impossible to visit unless you want to stand in line for 2 hours. No thank you.

The Bayeux Tapestry is an interesting piece of history. It's not the best piece of art, but walking along while listening to a narrator speaks the whole story to you via the audioguide is great. I really enjoyed listening to the story of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. I had some idea, but the details captured in the tapestry made the story come alive. Do: Arrive an hour before closing or you won't get to watch the video. I cannot speak to the video because I arrived too late. Don't: Expect great artistry, but instead look at the details of the times.

A slight discount rate due to the COVID-19 restrictions and the queues you have to suffer to see the first glimp of the tapestry. Although they open up half an hour earlier, it's still beyond me why they close at noon. Most probably some legal reasons, but still. It leaves a bunch of people waiting for an hour and a half (at least) to hear they won't be able to enter before noon. But they're welcome to come back in the afternoon. We passed in the afternoon and yet another queue was forming (albeit on the other side of the entrance). It was worth the wait, but a pity you have to follow the pace of the audioguide. One can understand this is necessary to have a fluent stream of people, and still be able to see something. I believe one needs approx 3 passes before you gather the details you want to take note of. There is quite a lot to see on the tapestry after all. The audioguide did point out some of the details and funny scenes, but went too fast on other parts.
