3 nights in Bayeux, FRANCE...how to make the most of our days in winter?

Jump to last reply

OK back with some questions, folks:
Given that we have decided on Bayeux for a base- how many different activities can we cram in ?( joking...we DO want to see lots but dont want to rush from sight to sight either)

Daughter (20) and I love history and OH says he will wait in the car LOL ..so we are most keen on the Bayeux tapestry having just researched/ watched documentaries on this period
Caen to see any memorial to William the Conqueror and the world war museum

we have ( sort of) shut the door on Mont st Michel and St Malo thinking that theyre too far away...so what else is there around Bayeux to fill up our days? OH loves driving so we
have an excellent chauffeur and he can speak French to boot

How long does it take to visit the beaches and any related museums..?
I realise that different people spend different amounts of time in museums..but just to generalise...not knowing the distances between significant sights/sites makes it difficult to plan out 3 days worth of itinerary

Are there any guided tours that we should consider- being winter, do these operate as regularly? or can we do it all ourselves?
I also realise that a lot of this information can be obtained locally...just want to be mentally prepared that's'all :)

Thank you for any teeny tips that might you may think of!
