Day 1: Paris – Sainte-Mère-Église – Sainte-Marie-du-Mont – Pointe du Hoc – Bayeux (D)
Meet near the Ecole Militaire metro stop in central Paris in the morning. Hop aboard a climate-controlled minivan and begin the 4-hour drive north to Normandy. You'll first visit Sainte-Mère-Église, the first French village to be freed from the German invasion. Visit the Airborne Museum and then drive to Sainte-Marie-du-Mont and Utah Beach, the code name for the westernmost landing beaches of the Allies. As General Theodore Roosevelt said about Utah Beach, “We’ll start the war from here!”.
Continue to Pointe du Hoc, a prominent cliff overlooking the English Channel that was the highest point between Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. As you'll learn, the Germans fortified Pointe du Hoc with concrete casements and gun pits, and on D-Day the United States Army Ranger Assault Group successfully assaulted the area after scaling the cliffs.
After a long day of WWII sightseeing, head to your hotel in the city of Bayeux for check-in, dinner and an overnight stay.
Overnight: Campanile Bayeux, or similar, in Bayeux
