Caen Travel Guide: 149 reviews and 397 photos

When I studied at the University of Karlstad a three weeks stay in Caen was mandatory during the 2nd term french class. We stayed in families and studied at CEE, Centre des Etudes Européennes.

I had a nice time there, but the study part was horrible :). I can't say that I remember all that much from Caen, more than that it was the set for huge fights during the liberation of France in 1944. Still there are some nice buildings and sights to see. I would definately recommend anyone visiting Normandy to pay some attention to Caen too.

    Those two buildings are really pretty especially the L' Abbaye de l' Hommes.
