Although a modern city today, Caen was a highly regarded town during medieval times, home to William the Conqueror in the 11th century in fact, and still shows signs of this today. The perfect place to get familiar with the city is the Chateau de Caen, a castle located just slightly to the north of the city centre. Simply park your car hire and visit the castle, which is located on top of a large hill, overlooking the city.
To see some more impressive historic sites, check out the two abbeys Abbaye aus Dames and Abbare aux Hommes, which also date back to the 11th century and can be found on either side of the city.

Back in Caen, there are some great laid back things to do also, such as the Jardin de Plantes, an impressive botanical garden which dates back several centuries, or the Musee des Beaux Arts de Caen, a fine art museum with an impressive collection.
