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.
Places that evoke courage like "la Pointe du Hoc" (Ranger's cliff) Or the huge logistic effort at Arromanches along the coast.
La Pointe du Hoc (rangers memorial)

We very much enjoyed our tour of Normandy beaches and area with Vincent. He was timely, extremely knowledgable of the history of the region and also passionate about his beloved France. Car was quite nice and extremely clean. We would tour again with Vincent!
