Caen Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Contemporary and culturally prominent, this town boasting two abbeys (the abbaye aux Hommes and the abbaye aux Dames) deserves its place as a technological, regional and touristic regional capital. Rich in history, it was here that William the Conqueror and his wife Matilda chose to reside. Ravaged by bombardments in the Second World War, Caen’s spirit of resistance and vitality is apparent in the shining image it presents to today’s visitors.
