Caen is a lively city known for its gastronomy, nightlife, and intriguing combination of medieval and modern history. Despite near destruction during WWII, the city has maintained many of its impressive sights: some of which date back to the days of William the Conqueror. Caen is one of France’s oldest university towns so, thanks to the students, there’s always a bit of buzz in the air. The narrow streets are packed with boutiques, bistros, and bars, so whether you want to drink in the history or indulge in the local Calvados brandy you’ll find plenty to keep yourself entertained in Caen.
