The northern French town of Bayeux is best known for the eponymous tapestry that depicts the 11th-century Norman Conquest. You can see it, of course, on display at the Bayeux Tapestry Museum. The cloth’s original home was the Bayeux Cathedral, which still towers over the area, looking a bit like a Gothic wedding cake. Inside you’ll find beautifully detailed murals and haunting crypts. Bayeux makes an excellent jumping off point to tour nearby historic WWII sites.
Brittany’s charming capital, Rennes is home to enough timber-framed houses and cobblestone streets to make you feel transported back to medieval France. Far from sleepy, however, the university town boasts art museums, sidewalk cafés, and the verdant Parc du Thabor.
Caen’s historic centre—with its medieval monuments, Romanesque churches, and poignant memorials—stands testament to the port city's troubled history, caught in the crossfire of Normandy’s most significant battles.

Hit the beautiful beaches of Weymouth to soak up the surprisingly powerful U.K. sun—there are plenty of waterfront options to pick from. The quaint harbor of Weymouth bobs merrily with fishing boats, and, downtown, Hope Square and Brewers Quay bustle with shoppers and merrymakers.
One of the most popular resort towns on the Italian Riviera, little Portofino has just over 500 permanent residents.

Diving, hiking and beach-going are popular local pastimes, and there are even some historic sights like the Church of St. Martin (Divo Martino) and the Castello Brown hilltop fortress.
Along the western edge of Lake Erie, your destination for family-fun awaits in Toledo, where the city meets the shore. Experience the world renowned Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo Zoo & Aquarium and Imagination Station, the city’s hands-on science centre. The revitalized downtown offers riverfront views, music venues and local eateries like the famous Tony Packo’s. Stay another day to explore one of sixteen area metroparks or cheer on the city’s Minor League Baseball team, the Toledo Mud Hens.
