Founded by Vikings in the 9th century, Normandy has fantastic culture, history and heritage just waiting to be explored. Great ports Cherbourg and Le Havre, picturesque fishing harbours like Honfleur or Dieppe, chic resorts and long sandy beaches all resonate with memories linking Normandy to its neighbour across the Channel. You can discover an astonishing artistic heritage, from the cartoon-like Tapestry in Bayeux, and Gothic masterpieces in Rouen and strange Mont St Michel, to Impressionist shrines like Monet's home beside the Seine. Normandy's rustic interior has picture-book charm, with thatched cottages, lanes and hedges, orchards and small farms. Dine in hearty local style on tripes a la mode de Caen, succulent salt-meadow lamb, famous creme fraiche and strong cheeses, and enjoy a tot of Normandy's powerful apple brandy, Calvados. All this and more is covered in Footprint's fantasic new full-colour guide. What the locals say: Suggestions from local people on where to go and what to do A year in the region: Month-by-month guide to pros and cons of visiting at certain times of the year Great days out: A series of great driving routes and city walks Favourite things: The author's personal recommendations of a place of an activity Pick of the picnic spots: Where to picnic and the best places to buy your goodies
