While you're there

Caen, count the belltowers!

Caen is situated in Basse-Normandie, in the north-east of France. The town nicknamed "ville aux cent clochers" ("hundred bell towers city" ) is only 2 hours far from Paris and connected to England thanks to the ferry boat Caen-Portsmouth.

The main historical monuments of Caen were built under WIlliam the Conqueror in the 11th century: the Abbey of Saint-Etienne (also known as "Abbaye aux Hommes") which houses the city hall, the Abbey of Sainte-Trinité (also called "Abbaye aux Dames") and the picturesque castle, one of the largest castles in Europe.

Despite the bombings of the Second World War, the old city was conserved and you can still stroll about its streets. Don’t forget to visit the Mémorial of Caen, commemorating the Second World War and the Battle for Caen which you won’t leave without feeling moved.

Discover the local gastronomy: the famous tripe from Caen, the "livarot" cheese and the "teurgoule" dessert.

Customer reviews

  • "Caen to Paris"    
    For price when booked early 2nd class works ok. Given trip was aprx 2hr 20min value good for price. Website easy to use. It would be helpful to be able to have E-ticket rather than expense of couier of paper ticket.  
  • "BAD LUCK"    
    Engine had a power problem and we ended up arriving later than next TGV. Cannot complain of handling of incident however.  
  • "a good experience"    
    Everything went smoothly. The train was on time, it was comfortable, and the transfer from Paris Est to St Lazare station for our connecting flight was made easy by excellent signage.
