Full description
Delve into the history of the Second World War and explore the sites of the deadly Allied invasion on June 6, 1944, known as D-Day. Discover the Normandy landing beaches, the American Cemetery, and the German fortifications and bunkers at the Pointe du Hoc with your knowledgeable guide.

Start in Paris, and depart for Normandy between 6:30 and 7:00 AM in an air-conditioned bus. Alight in Normandy and take a guided walk along the beaches. Learn about the shocking events that took place here, especially on Omaha Beach, the site where Allied losses were so great it became known as Bloody Omaha. Next, pay a somber visit to the American Cemetery.

Pause to reflect on the nearly 9,400 white crosses and the wall with soldiers' names that honor the American troops who fell for the liberation of Europe. Afterwards, stop in the historic town of Arromanches, and enjoy free time to explore the city and have lunch. Head to Gold Beach and see the remains of the Allies' artificial harbor, Mulberry B, before returning to Paris.
