Globus WWII D-Day, Landing Beaches and Battle of Normandy(RW2)

5 days from Paris to Paris 
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, you’ll 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 also in Caen, where you’ll visit the Memorial Museum for Peace.

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

On this tour, you’ll also 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, 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 the Juno Beach Center, which pays homage to the Canadians who lost their lives. Finally, you’ll visit the Memorial Pegasus Museum, dedicated to the 6th British Airborne Division.

History comes alive on this unmissable D-Day Landing Beaches tour.
