Take a full-day tour dedicated to the operations of June 6th 1944, when the Allies arrived at the landing beaches in Normandy to alter the course of history. Visit the American Cemetery in Colleville and the ruins of the artificial harbor at Arromanches.
What to Expect
Explore some of the most important sights in Normandy – the remains of historic Allied landings that changed the course of the Second World War. The full-day tour from Paris will take you to the Pointe du Hoc, best known for the battle between the 2nd Ranger Battalion and the German garrison.
You will also stop at the American Cemetery in Colleville, for an emotional visit, where 9,386 soldiers now rest. In 2007 a new Visitor Center was created to commemorate the operations of the D-Day Landings, and you will have time to learn more about these dramatic events.
Continue to Omaha Beach, where more bloody events took place, and spend some time contemplating those moments before you break for lunch at the 13th-Century “Ferme de la Rançonnière” restaurant in the village of Crépon.
In the early afternoon, you will see the ruins of the Arromanches’ artificial harbor, built by the Allies in less than 15 days. Finally, continue along the coast past Gold Beach to Juno Beach, where you will get a guided tour of the remains of the Atlantic Wall, before your return to Paris.
