Summary

Indulge in a memorable tour wherein you visit some of the ancient sites to acquire insights during World War I such as Chateau Thierry, Aisne et Oise Cemetery, Memorial Statue for the 42nd Rainbow Division. You will also see the Cemetery of Belleau and Memorial Museum in Meaux.

Meeting Point: From your hotel in Paris

Itinerary

Your private guide will pick you up at 7.30 am to take you to the sites of Chateau Thierry where the American Expeditionary Forces made one of the first actions on July 18 1918. The allied forces had managed to keep their plans a secret, and their attack at 04:45 took the Germans by surprise when the troops went "Over the Top" without a preparatory artillery bombardment, but instead followed closely behind a rolling barrage that began with great-synchronized precision. Eventually, the two opposing assaults (lines) inter-penetrated and individual American units exercised initiative and continued fighting despite being nominally behind enemy lines.

Then, you will aim to the Aisne et Oise Cemetery. On the way you will see the Memorial Statue for the 42nd Rainbow Division that was inaugurated in November 2011.

It is now time for lunch in a nice, typical, local restaurant (your private guide will recommend it to you, not included in the price).

After the lunch, you will see the memorial Cemetery of Belleau and the wood aside of it, where the 2nd Brigade of the Marines illustrated for its bravery and sense of Honor.

To end the day, you will visit the brand newly opened Memorial Museum in Meaux to get a better overall comprehension of the war.

After this visit, you private guide will drive you back to your hotel in Paris.
