On June 6, 1944, otherwise known as D-Day, Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and gained a foothold in the fight against Nazi Germany. On this WWII D-Day Landing Beaches & Battle of Normandy tour visit some of the beaches where the battles took place as well as some of the museums and cemeteries that are a tribute to the Allied forces. Your tour begins and ends in Paris with two overnights in Caen, where you’ll visit the Memorial Museum for Peace.

The first American troops landed on Utah Beach; here, visit the memorials and the museum, which chronicles the history of the landing. Next is Pointe du Hoc, where US Army Rangers scaled its cliffs. Omaha Beach is where the highest number of casualties occurred. Here, stop at the nearby American Military Cemetery & Memorial.

On this tour, see the German artillery bunkers and visit the D-Day Museum, the first museum built to commemorate D-Day. In Arromanches, see the remains of the Mulberry Harbor in the bay, a temporary harbor built to quickly offload men and cargo, and the Arromanches 360 Circular Cinema, which uses archived images to tell the story of the Battle of Normandy. In Sainte-Mère-Église, visit the Airborne Museum, dedicated to the American paratroopers. You’ll visit the Canadian Cemetery and at the Juno Beach Center, the exhibition, the bunker, and the Memorial to the Canadians.
