Please join us for this escorted tour from June 4 to June 13, 2018. The D-Day 74th Anniversary Tour will include time in Normandy and Paris. Sue Lillie of A Paris Travel will be your tour leader.

We will meet at Charles de Gaulle the morning of June 5th after departing home on June 4th. Our driver will take us to Normandy. While in Normandy, we will stay in Bayeux. This very special town in Normandy was the first town liberated by the British on June 7, 1944.

While in Bayeux, we will visit the Bayeux Tapestry that recounts the story of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

June 6, 2018 will be the 74th Anniversary of the Normandy D-Day invasion. The highlight of our escorted D-Day Tour  on that day will be a visit to the American Cemetery above Omaha Beach. We will visit Pointe du Hoc located four miles west of Omaha BeachPointe du Hoc is where Lieutenant Colonel James Earl Rudder led a United States Army Ranger Assault Group up hundred foot cliffs to attack a German artillery battery. It was a costly effort with the loss of many Americans. We will stroll the paths at Pointe du Hoc and easily envision what took place there.

If time allows, we will visit Arromanches. Arromanches is the location of Gold Beach, where the British came ashore on D-Day. The remains of Churchill’s Mulberry Harbor are still visible.

While in Normandy, we will have a day tour to Mont Saint Michel where 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.

On June 9th, we’ll depart Normandy for Paris!

There we will spend four nights in the chic St.Germain district on the Left Bank. While in Paris, we will do a lot of walking and sightseeing in the City of Light. We’ll visit the Louvre and Orsay Museums, discover the beautiful parks, wide avenues, and ancient narrow streets. Of course, we’ll take a Seine River Cruise, too. That way, we’ll get to see Paris from a totally different perspective! Ste. Chapelle is a gem of a chapel and we’ll attend a classical concert there to hear Vivaldi or whatever beautiful offering presents itself during our stay!

Come along to Normandy and Paris with us!
