Day Trip to the D-Day Beaches

A must for all Second World War enthusiasts or those interested in modern history. Experience an unforgettable visit to the D-Day beaches in Normandy where the Allies launched their push for victory.

Enjoy a full-day excursion from Paris to the D-Day Beaches in Normandy in the company of an official guide, who will bring these historic sites to life.

Departing at 7am from the centre of Paris, enjoy the ride in a luxury air-conditioned bus to relax and admire the beautiful landscapes of the Normandy countryside. The first stage of the visit will be on the beaches of Omaha Beach. Stormed by the American Rangers on June 6th, it is one of the strong points of the German fortifications on the Normandy coast, equipped at the time with a large number of heavy artillery pieces.

Then visit the famous St. Lawrence American War Cemetery located just above Omaha Beach in the town of Colleville-sur-mer. This 70-hectare site includes 9387 white marble headstones perfectly aligned on a lawn, the memorial, a chapel and the garden of the missing. It now honours the American soldiers who died during the Battle of Normandy in World War II and is one of 25 permanent U.S. burial sites abroad.

Next, a stop at Arromanches, a historic site known for its artificial harbour that was installed as part of the Normandy landings. It was used to unload 9000 tons of material on D-Day. Today, floating reinforced concrete caissons called "Phoenix" are still visible.

After enjoying a moment of relaxation on-site to have your lunch, you will visit the 360 Museum of Arromanches where you can observe the remains of one of the two artificial harbours built by the Allies.

The last stop is near the sandy beach of Juno and its cemetery, one of the main beaches of the landing of June 6, 1944, by the Canadians. Return to Paris around 8 pm.
