Normandy Itinerary

Day 6

Bayeux, Normandy, ©2012 Peter How (2)We follow our cycle path downstream to the port of Ouistreham at the mouth of the Orme and the Caen Canal. We visit a British cemetery and the Canada Centre at Juno Beach, but the highlights of our day will be the amazing Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches and the tapestry in Bayeux.

We’ll stay at another Lion D'Or, this one in Bayeux, and the one time HQ of Dwight Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander.  Yesterday, at the Caen Memorial, you'll have discovered what an extraordinary leader Eisenhower was - and today you stay in his old HQ.

31 miles.
