Then time to relax for a great lunch in a local restaurant.
Pointe du Hoc is an incredible site (Bomb craters, bunkers, the insurmountable cliffs).

Patrice provided an exceptional tour of Normandy for me and my 21 year old son. His knowledge of the area and the best places to visit was outstanding. He offered very useful guidance to me prior to my arrival in France and was flexible in terms of what and how we prioritized the sites. In addition to his knowledge, Patrice had a great sense of humor and connected very well with both my son and I. I'd highly recommend a tour with Patrice to anyone who would like to visit Normandy or Paris.
