What You Can Expect

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

American War Cemetery, 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.

Our tour guide was extremely informed and knowledgeable However for an older person it was a lot of walking.

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide, I think her name was Jollie, was amazing. Her knowledge of the war, the politics, the personalities, the battles, the challenges was extraordinary and she delivered the information in a way that really drew you in. It is difficult to do Normandy justice in a single day and we often wished we had more time but all the places we stopped were fascinating and 14 hours was already a long day. Kudos to our driver, Nicholas this wasnt an easy route and he did a great job. We would definitely recommend this tour!
