Port of Caen

About Caen, Guide and Tourist Attractions
(Ouistreham, Caen, Lower Normandy, France)

The Port of Caen is located in Ouistreham, which is a short drive from the town of Caen.

Passengers looking to explore the area will find plenty to see and do in both towns, as well as a variety of interests in the greater Normandy area. Paris is a short train ride away from Caen and makes an excellent day trip.

What to do in Caen

Discover the delights of the city by taking a stroll through its historic streets and squares where secret back courtyards can be found with features that tell much of the town's past. Spend an afternoon perusing the pedestrianised shopping precincts where large Parisian style stores sit amid more traditional independent retail outlets.

For the evening visit one of the town's many fine restaurants or cafés where the local cuisine is traditional French and the wine is of a very high standard.

Tourist Attractions

The Church of St Étienne at the Abbaye-aux-Hommes is a good place to visit if you like historical buildings. Dating back to the 13th century, the church is notable for its two 295-foot towers with magnificent octagonal spires. In the same area, the Church of La Trinité is also worth visiting. More history and culture are on show at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, the Musée de Normandie and the Museum of Peace.
In Ouistreham, where the ferry terminal is based, attractions include a casino, the Sea Water Therapy Centre, the Church of St Samson, N°4 Commando Museum and the Museum of the Atlantic Wall.
