Normandy is one of the most visited French regions in the country. Not only for its natural beauty, but also for having important historical landmarks that attract tourists from all over the world. With several charming cities, natural landscapes and, not to mention the gastronomic richness that only France can offer, enjoying a trip and tourism in Normandy will certainly be unforgettable.
With a variety of attractions and located near Paris, for the most adventurous, it is possible to come and go on the same day. But we guarantee: dedicating a few days to get to know Normandy better will be worth it. There, unlike in the capital, the pace is calmer. With beaches, cliffs, the World War II memorial, castles and gardens, is certainly an option for those who want to relax, return to the past and enjoy a unique cuisine.
The region is very extensive and rich in options of tours, but we emphasize some unmissable points for those who want to do tourism in Normandy. We start with the classic and most famous point: Mont Saint-Michel. World Heritage by Unesco in 1979, the history of this fortress starts in the year 708. It survived the War of 100 years, was used as a prison and in 1874 went through a great revitalization until it became what we can visit today.
If you want to breathe history, Caen is the right city! Practically destroyed during the Second World War, today it is cheerful and agitated because it welcomes many tourists and university students. Full of attractions, Caen has an imposing medieval castle from the 11th century, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Normandy and the Mémorial de Caen-Cité de l’Histoire pour la Paix.
Normandy also has the famous “D-Day Beaches”, places where allied troops landed in France and which was the beginning of the country’s recovery until the victory in World War II, known as Operation Overlord. This is an 80 km stretch of the Norman coast, marked by five strategic points on D-Day: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.
For those who do not have much time, visiting Giverny and the Monet Gardens is an excellent option, especially for those who want to come and go on the same day in Paris. The house, where the impressionist painter Claude Monet lived, is open to the public (except in winter). Besides seeing up close some of the sceneries that inspired the artist, being able to walk through the gardens is like feeling part of one of his paintings.
There are many options for tourism in Normandy. Besides the incredible beaches, we can also mention the cliffs of Etretat, the bustling city of Rouen, the small medieval town of Lisieux, and Honfleur, where there are colorful wooden houses. If you want to know the region well, it is important to take a few days to enjoy, relax as you should and enjoy the local cuisine – which is certainly worth it.
