Visit the major 'DDay' sites of Normandy in a day from Paris with private guide and transportation included

I will take you for a guided tour of the Landing Beaches in Normandy including Arromanches where can be seen the remains of a Mulberry harbor, this "temporary" port was used to disembark an army with all the men and supplies necessary to liberate Europe.

Stop on the site of the powerful German battery at Longues-sur-mer, their 150 mm guns were still operational on the morning of 6 June and they began firing at the allied battleships.

Continue with Omaha Beach and the moving Normandy American cemetery where 9385 Carrara marble crosses stand aligned. A memorial, inscribed with a map of the operations stands in the central alley and in the back, there is a museum.
Drive and stop along the beach where your guide will show you some of the German bunkers and machine-gun nests.

One of the most impressive site in Normandy, is perhaps Pointe du Hoc where the 2nd Rangers battalion captured the position by assault at dawn on 6 June, scaling the cliffs with ropes and extendible ladders
