Normandy excursion

WHAT YOU’LL DO

Visit the sites of the D-day, one of the most important events of the World War II
Drive through the unique region of Normandy and admire the North French coast of the Atlantic ocean
Explore the Utah Beach, the Omaha beach, the American memorial and cemetery, The German memorial and cemetery

OVERVIEW

The D-day was one of the turning points of the World War II, as well as the largest military operation in history of warfare. It took place on five key beaches, where American, British and Canadian forces debarked – where they met the fervent resistance of the entrenched German forces. What ensued was a bloody and desperate battle where tens of thousands of lives were lost on both ends. This tour is not only a visit of the most important sites where this battle (or, you could also say, these battles) took place, but the glimpse into a very complicated situation in the World War II France’s actual role and position.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Take a drive from Paris to Normandy and visit (ideally, depending on the weather and pace) five beaches, an American and a German memorial grounds. We visit not only the beaches but the actual bunkers, trenches and gun posts, as well as the tanks, boats and equipment used in the battle.

This 10 hour tour (drive from Normandy to Paris and back included) not only gives you an overview of the beautiful, yet even after all these years still war-torn Normandy scenery and history, it also gives you a great and rare insight into France’s role in the very layered conflict that was the World War II.

Although we’d want it to be, history is written not only by works of art, buildings and boulevards, culture and lifestyle and cuisine; it is, firstly and fore mostly, sadly, written by war. If you are interested in historic sites that still, after all these years, faithfully and graphically depict the actual warfare in all its size, be sure not to miss this tour.

SOME OF THE SITES WE’ll VISIT

Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Sword Beach, Golden Beach, American memorial, German memorial.

MEETING POINT

The meeting point is at the reception desk of your hotel or in front of your apartment. Your guide will be carrying a red canvas tote bag.
