A visit to the beaches, where the greatest invasion force of all time landed, is a must for anyone visiting Normandy’s north coast. The 54 miles of Atlantic coast north of Bayeux - stretching from Utah Beach in the west to Sword Beach in the east - are dotted with WWII museums, monuments, cemeteries, and battle remains left in tribute to the courage of British, Canadian, and American armies that successfully carried out the largest military operation in history, D-Day. It was these tranquil beaches, on a rainy week in early June 1944, that the Allies finally gained a foothold in France; from this moment, Nazi Europe was destined to collapse.
Have a Road Trip adventure at France's Normandy Coast; a place that marked the beginning of a long and costly campaign to liberate northwestern Europe from Nazi occupation during WWII. Begin with a stay in Paris (The City of Lights with impressive monuments, museums, culture and gastronomy). After that, drive along the stretch of Normandy, and discover The D-Day Beaches (they were the landing places for the Allied invasion of western Europe during World War II). Finally, drive back to Paris, for one last night stay, before heading back home. This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel and activities.
