Description

Enjoy a full-day trip from Paris to the D-Day Beaches in Normandy in the company of a guide, who'll bring these historic sites to life. Learn about the military operation, and visit the American Cemetery, Arromanches, and Juno Beach. Board the air-conditioned coach in central Paris and get set to enjoy a unique day in Normandy. Relax and admire the beautiful landscapes of the French countryside. Visit the well-known American Cemetery at Saint Laurent. Explore this 170-acre site that features 9,387 white marble headstones lined up perfectly across the grass, a memorial, a chapel, and the Garden of the Missing. Follow a small trail down to Omaha Beach, too. Visit the german betteries at Longues sur Mer. The next stop is in Arromanches, a historic town known for its artificial port that was built to assist the Normandy landings. On D-Day, the harbor saw the unloading of almost 10,000 tons of equipment. You can still make out the floating reinforced concrete Phoenix constructions in the water. Before returning to Paris, make a short stop near sandy Juno Beach and its cemetery, one of the key D-Day landing beaches for Canadian troops on June 6, 1944. Get the opportunity to see everyday objects from life under occupation, maps, and models of military vehicles, as well as film screenings recreating the emotions of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.
