Description

Explore on a day tour of the D-Day Beaches, including the Mulberry Harbour, Longues sur Mer, Omaha Beach and of course the American Cemetery in Colleville sur Mer.

Enjoy your guide, born and raised in Normandy, from a family who lived through the occupation and landing near Lisieux. After meeting you at 7am with some croissants and coffees to start your day, go off to explore the beaches.

As your guide drives you to Arromanches (approx 2-hour drive), see the port British built to organize the landing of the troops in June 1944. Later have lunch at a very nice restaurant with a great view over the beach.

Head to the American Cemetery in Colleville sur Mer, where many gave their lives.

Continue on to Longues sur Mer to see the Batteries the Germans used to protect the coast from the Allies. After, go the Pointe du Hoc to see how the United States Rangers climbed the cliffs to disarm the German Defence.

If time allows, visit the famous for the paratroopers who jumped to reinforce the landing operations on the coast. You will then be driven back to your hotel In Normandy or to the Caen or Bayeux train station to go back to Paris. Plenty of sightseeing along the route.
