What You Can Expect

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Omaha Beach Monument in Normandy

Your Normandy day trip from Paris begins with the 3- to 4-hour drive out of the city to France’s northwest coast. Enjoy pretty views of the French countryside, and stop at the Caen Memorial, dedicated to films and illustrations about World War II and the D-Day landings of June 1944.

Enjoy lunch here before heading to Pointe du Hoc, a German defense site that was captured by American soldiers, and then visit the American Cemetery and Memorial near Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, the final resting place of nearly 10,000 members of the US military. The cemetery overlooks Omaha Beach, where you have free time to walk along the shore, take in the ocean views and reflect on the bloody events that seem a world away from this now-tranquil location. You can also check out the Visitor Centre, home to poignant exhibits that depict the stories and operations of the American soldiers.

Your next destinations are Juno Beach to see the Canadian Memorial and Arromanches, where you can check out remnants of the artificial landing harbor built by the Allies. Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Paris.

Amazing. Very emotional when you actually see where you have read about for years.To imagine thousands of teens in that situation- and see what they had to overcome... Everyone should go there.

Normandy was on my bucket list and joining this trip with Viator was the perfect way to get it done. I learned much, saw as much as possible, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I paid to be picked up at my hotel but my ride did not show and I did not want to risk missing the tour so I took a taxi. They immediately paid for my taxi and refunded me the pick up fee. Thanks Viator for a great tour!

The tour was amazing. It was so informative. It is long. It is a 4 hour bus trip going to Normandy, and 4 hours back. This was the only drawback. However the guides were outstanding, and knowledgeable.

Our guide was great, she was knowledgeable and helpful. It was a busy day but didn't feel too rushed except at the beach stops though I understand why that has to be for driving time constraints. An excellent job fitting a lot in for those of us who have only a day to spend seeing as much as possible!
