Day 11 Bayeux to Amiens

This morning we learnt about and visited the Bayeux Tapestry. It was pretty amazing - 70 metres of tapestry that tells the story of William the Conqueror's invasion and is almost 1000 years old. We also had our final walk around Bayeux's old style village.

We travelled by coach to Amiens where we explored the Notre Dame Cathedral. It has plaques to many of the country brigades that fought during World War 1, including Australia. The cathedral was amazing and awe-inspiring as it is so old and still has so much history for us to see. There were very few areas that were closed off; most areas of the cathedral were open for us to explore and photograph. After this, we explored the city of Amiens where we did some shopping and tasted local delicacies like crepes with speculoos and Nutella. It is a really pretty city.
