Description

Commemorate the bravery of the American soldiers who defended the Pointe du Hoc by visiting the historical sites of the American Cemetery in Coleville, the Visitor Center, Omaha Beach, the Arromanches, Gold Beach and Juno Beach. This tour will be initiated with pickups of the participants from their hotels in central Paris.

Travel comfortably aboard a luxury airconditioned minibus to the French region of Normandy where your first destination is located. First in the itinerary of this trip is a tour of the Pointe du Hoc. This raised mass of land overlooks the English Channel. To prevent the Germans from advancing, soldiers from the United States (ally of the French) recaptured the Pointe Du Hoc after scaling its cliffs. A tour of this cliff will enable you to climb through bunkers, walk through the cliffs scaled by the American soldiers, and observe the bomb craters.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the American Cemetery in Coleville. Pray for the departed souls of the 9,386 brave soldiers who fought against the Germans during the D-Day battles in Normandy. To understand the significance of the sacrifice of these soldiers even more, you will be given the chance to tour around the Visitor Center of the American Cemetery where you can be able to understand the intimate stories of the 10,944 people that this memorial is dedicated to. Discover the Omaha Beach which was used as one of the landing beaches during the D-Day battles.

Lunch will be enjoyed at the Ferme de la Rançonnière restaurant at the Crépon village.

After lunch, you will go on a trip to see the Arromanches artificial harbor. Also called as the Mulberry harbor, this harbor was built by the British during World War II as a way to transport goods from the supply ships off the coast of Normandy. Composed of 105,000 tons of steel, 144,000 tons of concrete, and 85,000 tons of ballast, this artificial harbor was able to accommodate 7,000 tons of vehicles and goods per day.

Last on the itinerary of this trip are detours to the Gold Beach and Juno Beach. These beaches were among the four landing beaches used during the D-Day landings of either the Canadian, American, or British armies.

This tour will end with the transfers back to hotels in Paris.
