On June 6, 1944, otherwise known as D-Day, Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and gained a foothold in the fight against Nazi Germany. On this WWII D-Day Landing Beaches & Battle of Normandy tour, you’ll visit some of the beaches where the battles took place as well as some of the museums and cemeteries that are a tribute to the Allied forces.
Your tour begins and ends in Paris with two overnights also in Caen, where you’ll visit the Memorial Museum for Peace. The first American troops landed on Utah Beach; here, you’ll visit the memorials and the museum, which chronicles the history of the landing.
