Known for its military history and World War II beachfronts, Normandy served as the site of some of the war’s most memorable battles, as Americans joined the fight for France’s freedom. During this flexible, private historical tour through cemeteries and battlefronts, you’ll revisit the triumphs and losses of the formidable military campaign.
After a front-door pickup from your Bayeux hotel, you’ll travel comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan between sights in a group capped at just seven people for a personalized journey. Arriving at the battle scenes, you’ll get a close look at the infamous stretch of coastline, where so many Americans laid down their lives. Your guide will give background and context to the memorials as you retrace the steps of American soldiers.
All tours are fully customizable, so you can stick to the sights or design your own stops, and even make time for a museum excursion. Enjoy a local lunch and time to wander the medieval countryside before continuing your visit to key battle sites, where you’ll feel the impact of the heroic invasion firsthand.
