This trip was one of the highlights of my Paris trip. The van picked us up promptly at our hotel. Although I'm 6'3", and sat in the third row, the van was pretty comfortable. It was a pleasant 3 hour trip to Normandy. Once there, we visited the German bunkers first. We had 30 minutes of free time to check it out. Wish we had a little more time here because these are the only bunkers you're going to see on this trip. Then we drove to Omaha beach. There we spent only about 15 minutes. I had to ask to go down and walk on the beach. Make sure you ask if you want to walk it. Then off to the American Cemetery. We got and hour and a half there. Wonderful and beautiful. From here we had lunch at a nice little Restaurant. Over an hour here. Food was very good and our table had 2 bottles of wine. Then off to Gold beach. Spent about 30 minutes here. This is where you'll find gift shops. A little more time would have been good here too. I felt a little rushed. Finally a 3 hour drive back to Paris. I highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to visit Normandy Beach.
