Bayeux

After the rush and bustle of Paris, my school group took a break in small, picaresque town of Bayeux. The people here were incredibly kind, and took life at a more leisurely pace than their Parisian counterparts.

Bayeux’s main claim to fame is that it is home to the Bayeux Tapestry. This ancient relic depicts William the Conqueror’s conquest of England. We got to go see it, and even though I’m not a history person, I was quite impressed. The tapestry is over a thousand years old, but is still incredibly clear and the storyline is easily followed.

Bayeux was the favorite town of many in our group. The weather, mild with a bite of chill, afforded perfect walking among sedentary streets, quaint buildings shadowing the sidewalks and welcoming passerbys with banners and displays.
