Description

Join me on this Online Experience and let us together go through the history of Normandy and Bayeux. I will enrich this experience with anecdotes about my hometown - and we may even meet some of my friends to learn more!

We will begin this virtual heritage walk at the Place des Pommiers Bridge, from where we can behold one of the best views of Bayeux - one with the river, the tourist office and the cathedral in the backdrop. It is against this view that I will share with you an arresting history of Normandy from the period of the Romans to that of the Vikings.

Next, we will make our way to the Churchill Hotel, thus named because Winston Churchill stayed here during the Second World War. On our way, we will also get to admire the beautiful 5-star hotel Villa Lara.

Arriving at the building where a famous 11th-century tapestry is on display, I will share the illuminating story of William the conqueror with you. This will be followed by a tour of the Bayeux Cathedral from the outside.

Finally, we will make our way through the medieval city's tiny streets and arrive at the Charles de Gaulle Square. Here, I will share some more interesting information with you before we say our final goodbyes in front of the Poppa Water Fountain.
