9 Day Paris and the Historic WWII Sites of Normandy

9 Day Paris and the Historic WWII Sites of Normandy
On a drizzly morning in June 1944, a wave of men 156,000 strong rolled across the English Channel. Their destination: The northern coast of France. Their mission: To take back a continent. Their legacy: The beginning of the end of a war that threatened to consume the globe. Peace would come, but many thousands of those men would not live to see it. As the setting for the greatest seaborne invasion in history, Normandy has become synonymous with World War II. The guns are quiet now; the bunkers stand empty. But the towering cliffs and sleepy seaside towns still draw those looking to reflect, to remember, and to pay homage. It remains a place that reminds visitors not only of the cost of peace but of why peace is worth fighting for.

A moving journey that combines the magic of Paris with the solemnity of Normandy, this tour begins in the French capital, where you’ll be treated to an insider’s glimpse of the “City of Lights” on a half-day tour of its landmarks, including a visit to the iconic Eiffel Tower. Later, explore the Palace of Versailles, the fascinating chateau of Louis XIV and symbol of the ancien régime. Head north to historic Bayeux and neighboring Audrieu, the gateway to Normandy. Spend the next two days as you wish: exploring the D-Day Landing Museum, the American Military Cemetery, Pointe du Hoc, Sainte-Mère-Église, and walking Utah and Omaha beaches in the company of a private guide. Later, go back even further in time courtesy of a full-day tour of spectacular Mont Saint-Michel, a majestic fortified island monastery and UNESCO World Heritage Site before returning to Paris for the quintessential French adieu: dinner and show at the racy Moulin Rouge.
