    The first stop is the Caen Memorial Museum, dedicated to the second world war and the Normandy landings of June 1944. See the historic objects from life under occupation, maps, and models of military vehicles, as well as film screenings that recreate the emotions of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

  • Lunch

    Savor a delightful lunch at the Caen Memorial Museum.

  • Pointe du Hoc

    A clifftop memorial, overlooking the hundred-foot-high cliffs between Utah and Omaha beaches, the Pointe du Hoc is truly a must-visit landmark. Stormed by the American Rangers on June 6, it was one of the key German fortified sites along the Normandy coast!

  • American Cemetary

    Visit the American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer. This 170-acre site is home to 9,387 white marble headstones, lined up perfectly across the grass, a memorial, a chapel, and the Garden of the Missing. Walk along Omaha Beach, the main landing spot for Operation Neptune.

    "Gold Beach" was the code name of one of the D-Day landing beaches used to invade France on June 6, 1944. On D-Day, the harbour saw the unloading of almost 10,000 tons of equipment. You can still make out the floating reinforced concrete "Phoenix" constructions in the water.

  • Canadian Memorial of Juno Beach

    Finally, you will make a short photo-stop near the sandy Juno Beach and its cemetery, one of the key D-Day landing beaches for Canadian troops on June 6, 1944.

We fest a bit hurried. The guide should have told us that the shop in the museum was the only place to buy souvenirs as we all tho...ught we could buy them at the beaches. So many of us did not purchase any items to take home. more
