How do I get to the two D-Day Beaches?  (1 Answer)

I'm planning to go to a Band of Brothers reunion event which would be at Overlord Omaha Beach and Utah Beach. I'll be staying near Utah Beach as there is two events there.

I was wondering if anyone has got advise on how to travel cheap from Caen to Utah Beach and then to Omaha and back to Utah as the first day of the event is based on Omaha beach.
We don't particularly want to drive so if there is any cheap alternatives, that would be helpful, thanks.

Things to see and do  (9 Answers)

Hi
For our 30th wedding anniversary and to coincide with the 100th anniversary of WW1 we are going to Caen in July for a week stay.
Never having been there before and, wanting to make the most of our 5 days there, what should we not miss seeing and doing while there?
We will have our own car so mobility is not a problem.
Thanks all in advance.
Dave and Carole (UK)

Ferry to Caen, day trip  (2 Answers)

Hello! I'm new to this forum and have some questions about a possible day trip to Caen in October.

I'm planning on getting the overnight ferry from Portsmouth due to arrive in Ouistreham at 6.45am. I've not taken the ferry before, does anyone know how long it takes after docking to exit the ferry? Also will anywhere be open at that time for breakfast or are we better off driving to to the center of Caen? How long in the drive from the post to the city centre? Is it easy to park?

As I am planning a day trip, the return ferry back to Portsmouth is at 16.30. Assuming we have to get to the port an hour before hand, is that enough time to visit the castle, eat croissants and have a wander around the town?

Any tips or advice on ferry travel to Caen and what is achievable during such a short trip is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Caen Hotel Recommendation  (5 Answers)

We will be staying in Caen in early September, driving through the area, using Caen as our base, as it is rather central. We are looking for a nice hotel there. So far, I have looked at the Ivan Vautier, which looks very nice, but it is located away from the center and are told its a 20 minute walk to get there. We would like to be within a few minutes walk of the center so that we don't need to drive every time we leave our hotel. I also looked at the Adagio, but it is difficult to tell whether it is a full-service hotel, or a self-service apartment. I also looked at a hotel in Cabourg, but their prices were in the 500 Euro per night range. I'd like to hear whatever suggestions anyone can offer who knows this area and hopefully the hotels.

Thanks.

Carl

Help! Has anyone travelled to Caen/Normandy in November???  (2 Answers)

I am planning a trip for my extended family. We have 12 people in our group. (ages 18-70). We would like to visit Paris, Normandy (DDay Beaches) and Mont St. Michel.

The only time we can travel together is over the Thanksgiving holidays.

I keep getting mixed information regarding the weather. How cold is it? How much daylight? (i've heard from as little as 3 hours of daylight to 8 hours.)

I would very much appreciate anyone who has been there in November/December to share their experience with me... I'm so confused. Would you go at that time or put it off for a few years?

Thank you in advance,

KKJ

HI - Hostel in Caen  (2 Answers)

Hello all
Has anyone tried booked accomodation or stayed in this hostel?
I was on the HI hostel website, and this hostel doesn't take online bookings. So i emailed the hostel and they told me (in broken English) that i had to ring 4 days before my visit to reserve my bed. For me, this is a bit un-nerving since i am worried there will be no beds free if i leave it that late to visit.
Any thoughts on this anyone?
DG
