Living in Caen

La Venise Normande, as the locals call it, is the capital of the Basse-Normandie region of France. Only a few kilometers away from the English Channel, Caen is popular with British tourists, as well as those from all over the world. As the nickname suggest, Caen is well-known for having beautiful architecture, narrow maze-like streets and fantastic food. If you're new to the city, the first thing you should do is take a look at the 11th century medieval castle - it will give you a good idea of what the rest of the area is like. A trip to the Abbeye aux Hommes should round things off nicely, as it's one of the most celebrated Romanesque buildings in all of France. Living in Caen is as fun or challenging as you make it, but with the help of an InterNations membership, you can take the edge off that first step as an expatriate in Caen.
