Caen Airport is situated in the lower Normandy region of France, Caen is popular with tourists for a variety of reasons. There are those who wish to see the famous abbeys, castles and cathedrals along with Caen's vibrant array of shops, bars and restaurants; and there are those who come to pay homage to the war memorials, and the Normandy beaches. Both aspects are there to be explored.
Car hire in Caen Airport is recommended as it opens up opportunities to see popular sites of Norman history like Bayeux. Hiring a car in Caen also allows you to tour the Normandy region as a whole which is steeped in history due to its geographical position.
Those visiting Caen will be struck by how picturesque the town is. The four major historical landmarks are the Chateau de Caen, (which offers some incredible views over the town from the ramparts), St Etienne Church, the Abbey Aux Hommes (William the Conqueror's burial place), and the Abbey Aux Femmes – situated just on the outskirts of town.
The Memorial of Caen is around two miles from the city centre and it attracts a huge number of visitors each year. As well as being a WWII museum, it also broaches the whole of the turbulent history of the twentieth century in a manner that is most engaging.
Historians who are hiring a car at Caen Airport might like to visit the town of Bayeux - which is just 34km away on the N13. Here you'll find treasures such as the Bayeux Tapestry in which the spellbinding embroidery simply breathes history. The Cathedral Notre Dame is popular, and the British War Cemetery is a hugely poignant reminder of our very recent history.
Rent a car at Caen Airport and visit as much of the surrounding memorials and medieval architecture as you can; you'll realise how important Normandy has been throughout the last few hundred years of European history.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
