We will meet up in Paris and spend 4 nights in the City of Light. While in Paris, we will enjoy exploring the city and, of course, we'll visit the Louvre Museum, the Orsay Museum, and see many highlights in the France capital city. It's always special to do a Seine River Cruise, too. That way, we will get to see Paris from a totally different perspective!
Then, we're off to Normandy where we will stay in Bayeux. The highlight is that we will be in Normandy for June 6, 2013 to join in the ceremonies at the American Cemetery in honor of the 69th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.
We will also tour Pointe du Hoc located four miles west of Omaha Beach. Pointe du Hoc is were Lieutenant Colonel James Earl Rudder led a United States Army Ranger Assault Group up 100 foot cliffs to attack a German artillery battery. It was a costly effort with the loss of many Americans. You will be able to stroll the paths at Pointe du Hoc and easily envision what took place there.
We'll visit Arromanches. In Arromanches, you will see Gold Beach (where the British came ashore on D-Day) and also see the remains of Churchill's Mulberry Harbor.
We will have a day tour to Mont Saint Michel while in Normandy. The dramatic views of this impressive wonder of the world are amazing. Its history has seen it as a monastery, a prison, and now it's a pilgrimage destination, and the second most visted place in France after the Eiffel Tower.
