The day-trip from Paris to Normandy D-Day Landing Beaches along with the American Cemetery is a treat for all the history buffs. Book this tour that promises to make you realize the severity of the past days. Choose a large or a small group, depending on your budget and how you want to experience this outstanding day.
Your Normandy day trip from Paris starts with the 3-4-hour drive to France’s northwest coast. Enjoy the scenic journey through the French countryside and stop at the award-winning Caen Memorial for a fascinating journey through WW2 and the D-Day landings.
Enjoy lunch here before moving on to Pointe du Hoc, a strategic German defense base captured by American soldiers. You will then be able to pay your respects in the eerie calm of the American Cemetery and Memorial, where nearly 10,000 US military war heroes are laid in the most humbling tribute.
The cemetery overlooks Omaha Beach, where you have free time to walk along the shore, take in the ocean views, and reflect on the poignant stories behind each name.
Feel free to explore the Visitor Center where stories and operations of the American soldiers are explained in detail. Next, you head for Juno Beach to see the Canadian Memorial and Arromanches, where you can still see the remains of the artificial landing harbor built by the Allies.
Your unforgettable day trip ends with the drive back to Paris.
