Situated in the northern area of France, Normandy is an area of rich historical significance. Many history lovers travel to Normandy throughout the year to see the sites of the Normandy Landings during the Second World War, and to visit the battlefields of the two Great Wars. Head further back in time and see the Bayeux Tapestry itself!
The Normandy area of France is home to some extraordinary chateaux, as well as famous pottery and romantic, rugged coast lines (where Mont Saint Michel itself towers above the waves). Be sure to check out the wonderful cheap hotels in this area, and to take home some jars of local caramel as a souvenir.
