I'm so glad I found this option to see Normandy from Paris after exploring numerous other options to get out there on my own on a solo trip. I will definitely keep this group in mind when I return to tour other places they do.

Take a walk through historical World War II sites on this tour. Meet your driver-guide, and get started on your journey to the beaches of Normandy in a comfortable air-conditioned minibus. Your first stop is at La Pointe du Hoc, a promontory with 100-foot high cliffs overlooking the English Channel, where 225 United States Rangers landed on the morning of June 6, 1944. Even though it was strongly fortified with concrete casemates and gun pits by the German army, the US army captured it by scaling the cliffs. Your guide will give you some time here to soak in the somber vibes of this location.

Next, visit the Colleville sur Mer American Cemetery which overlooks Omaha Beach. The site contains over 9,000 perfectly aligned white crosses and a memorial chapel, dedicated to American troops who died in Europe during World War II. Spend some time in this moving space, reflecting on the price of war.

The other World War II locations that you will see are Arromanches with its remnants of the artificial harbor (Mulberry Bridge), Longues-sur-Mer and the German artillery battery, the only one in Normandy to retain all its original guns in situ. At the end of your tour you will get to see the Caen Peace Memorial, a place dedicated to the history of the twentieth century, and to remind us all of the fragility of peace.
