As a historian, I love going to sites of historic interest. This is a classic and looks much like it did (given the replacement bridge) in 1944. Good monumnets and descriptions and the nearby Museum is a must.

The bridge currently spanning the Caen Canal is new....wider and longer than the one that was fought over in WWII. It was built to resemble the original, but to be more efficient with today's cars and traffic. If you want to see the actual bridge,...More
