Summary

During your excursion, you will be steeped in the history that has affected many nations via your guide’s comments and by visiting these symbolic sites of the Second World War.

You will depart Paris on an air conditioned bus in the morning and set off to Normandy. The trip allows you to enjoy the beautiful French countryside and see the lovely Normandy landscapes while you listen to the initial commentary by your guide.

You will arrive at around 10:15 a.m. in Caen to enjoy the visit to the Memorial, the first step in your Normandy stopover. You can take your time to discover the Museum of Peace, a museum that is a symbol of the History that commemorates the main stages of the Second World War. You will see models of military planes, jeeps or cars of this era; photos and texts illustrate the horror and terror of the conflicts; films plunge the visitor into the emotional turmoil that was the Battle of Normandy and D Day of the Normandy Invasion.

You will then have some free time for lunch inside the Caen Memorial, in a restaurant of your choice: The Café of the Memorial, the restaurant “La Terrasse”, that offers traditional cuisine in a warm inviting setting, or the restaurant “Les Pommiers” which has an all you can eat buffet of dinners or desserts.

The afternoon will bring you to the Landing Beaches, the first being the Pointe du Hoc, located between Utah Beach and Omaha Beach.

With your guide, you will be led to the American cemetery of Saint-Laurent, de Colleville-sur-mer, which overlooks the bluff over Omaha Beach. There are many Americans who go there to meditate and pay homage to their relatives who fought for France. You will have about an hour to visit this symbolic location from where you take a path to get to Omaha Beach.

The last stage will be at Arromanches (famous for the artificial harbor erected on D Day, June 6, 1944) and/or a photo stop in Juno.

You will then make your trip back to Paris and arrive at around 9:00 p.m.
