D-Day and Normandy World War II sites

Learn about the impact of World War II on France with this emotive and enlightening tour. Visit locations and landmarks that were the scene of many key moments throughout the war, including the Normandy beaches where the D-Day landings took place. Begin the experience by meeting your knowledgeable guide who, well-versed in the history of World War II, will make the stories behind the sites seemingly come to life. First of all is a drive to the famous Beach of Normandy; drive there in a deluxe air-conditioned vehicle. Visit the Pointe du Hoc, a range of astounding cliffs almost 30 meters high. This site, one of the strongpoints of the German fortifications, was where 225 rangers landed on the morning of June 6, 1944. Continue then towards Colleville-sur-Mer for a remembrance visit to the American Cemetery, which contains over 9,000 perfectly aligned white crosses. All other decoration on the landscape is limited to a chapel and a memorial; a site for quiet introspection. After that moment of pause, head towards Arromanches where you can visit the vestiges of the artificial harbour known as Mulberry Bridge, Longues-sur-Mer and the German artillery battery which ruthlessly hammered the Allied forces on 6 June. The latter is the only coastal battery that conserves its guns, making it a chilly portrait of what wartime must have looked like. Before your drive back to Paris, stop at the Caen Memorial, a place for reflection on the horrors of war and, specifically, this war which still haunts us today.
