Day trip from Paris


The plan of this 12 to 13-hour tour is to cover the significant landmarks along the 50 miles long landing beaches used by the allies on June 6th, 1944 to free Europe from the Nazi oppression.
I will cover the different sites of the battle of Normandy that ended up on August 21st before the American troops entered Paris.
Places that evoke bloody combats like the American cemetery at Omaha beach, used today as a memorial to thank those who paid of their lives to free Europe.
