If you are interested in historic sites that still, after all these years, faithfully and graphically depict the actual warfare in all its size, be sure not to miss this excursion from Paris to Normandy Coast.
Take a drive from Paris to Normandy and visit five beaches, an American, and a German memorial grounds. We visit not only the beaches but the actual bunkers, trenches and gun posts, as well as the tanks, boats, and equipment used in the battle.
The D-day was one of the turning points of World War II, as well as the largest military operation in history of warfare. It took place on five key beaches, where American, British and Canadian forces debarked – where they met the fervent resistance of the entrenched German forces. What ensued was a bloody and desperate battle where tens of thousands of lives were lost on both ends. This tour is not only a visit of the most important sites where this battle (or, you could also say, these battles) took place, but a glimpse into a very complicated situation in the World War II France’s actual role and position.
Some of the sites we'll visit: Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Sword Beach, Golden Beach, American memorial, German memorial.
