Hitting the shops in Normandy
A weekend in Normandy gives you the perfect chance to do a bit of shopping. The towns here are full of fascinating markets and boutiques, where you'll be able to pick up some vintage or one-of-a-kind pieces. Without a doubt, the best shopping destination is Rouen. Here you'll find fine porcelain and antiques, and you can complete your day with a stop at the Ceramic Museum.
Historical sights in Normandy
History buffs often choose short breaks to Normandy beaches, where the D-Day landings took place in World War II. Today, it seems impossible that these peaceful beaches were once the site of this key military operation.
There are memorials on many of the beaches, while Utah Beach is also home to the Airborne Museum and WWII Museum. Omaha Beach houses the Overlord Museum, dedicated to the entire operation, as well as moving cemeteries, the last resting place for the soldiers who fell in battle
Don't miss the chance to visit Mont Saint-Michel, a rocky tidal island with a Benedictine abbey. It looks spectacular from a distance, appearing to rise directly out of the water, but it's even better close up
As you explore the winding, narrow alleys and crooked streets of the island, you'll feel like you've been transported to a fantasy world. This is one thrilling experience that should not be missed; even short breaks to Normandy will give you enough time to visit this magical spot.
The best of Norman cuisine
Normandy has some of the best cheeses in France. In particular, the world-famous camembert is locally produced. You'll find plenty of local dishes that celebrate this rich, soft cheese.
Autumn is the best time to visit for Normandy's famous apple crop. However, you can enjoy a shot of Calvados at any time of year. This local digestif is traditionally served after dinner, sometimes poured over a shot of apple sorbet.
