My husband and I are planning to spend 2 nights in Caen. We will be seeing the Normandy beaches (with a tour) on one of the two days. The only other definite thing we plan to do is see the Caen peace museum/memorial on the alternate day. I understand that the museum is on the edge of town. So my question is, would it make more sense to stay in the city center or to stay near the museum? It seems there are several options in the 30 euro/double range in either place. We are traveling by rail and will not have a car.
Thank you for your advice!
