I'm coming to Bayeux later this week and I literally have just an afternoon and a morning to see the sights.
The tapestry and cathedral are musts of course but is there anywhere else I should see and do. I'll be on foot.
Any recommendations for lunch?
CAnd finally, could anyone tell me how long it would take to walk from the Gare SNCF to the Novotel on the rue Saint Patrice.
The distance by car is 2.5 kms but looking at the map you can take a bit of a short cut. Say 2+ kms.
Lunch suggestion (not budget!): Hotel Lion d'Or is a famous hotel in Bayeux. Many of the world's famous people stayed there (including me, hahaha!).
Afterthought: I just checked the menu at Le Lion d'Or. They have a lunch menu for € 20 or € 25 euro (2 or 3 course). Looks good!
Bayeux is a great place to visit - loved it, especially the tapestry and the cute streets and buildings - an afternoon and morning is more time than i had from memory so lucky you!
many thanks for these suggestions.
