Normandy is a great place for a camping holiday. The long coastline has miles of sandy beaches for sunbathing or swimming, dramatic cliffs and headlands with some great walks, quaint towns with old fishing harbours like Honfleur, or fashionable resorts like Deauville. Inland you'll find huge tracts of almost untouched forest with walking and cycling tracks, though which flow lazy rivers with meadows and woods along their banks.

Of course many people visit Normandy because of its recent history in the two World Wars, and there are many specialised tours of the battlefields and landing beaches, or you can just make your own way around.

Normandy's large towns and cities are also worth visiting. Rouen is the regional capital, with an impressive cathedral, a lively fish market (even the market building is shaped like a fish!), and an interesting old town. The famous tapestry at Bayeux, telling the story of the Norman Conquest, is a must-see, and Caen is worth a visit for its well-preserved city walls. In the far west, close to Brittany, is the world-famous island monastery of le Mont-St-Michel, reached by a causeway, a very busy tourist destination.
