Visit the main highlights of Normandy in this full-day tour from Bayeux
If you have only one day for Normandy, you can discover Omaha Beach Landing and Mont Saint Michel in full day tour.
First at all, we will see La Pointe du Hoc. Preserved as it was at the end of fighting, this place was taken by US Rangers using grappling hooks.
Next, we will see "Bloody Omaha". The 1st and 29th US Divisions had terrible losses on Dday. I'll show exact location of famous "Norman Cota's draw".
Also, you will have time to pay your respects at American Cemetery.
After lunch in Bayeux, we drive to visit famous Mont Saint Michel.
Known as a Marvel of the Western World, the monument and its unique natural setting are also now classified World Heritage sites by UNESCO.
The beauty of the architecture, its long history and the movement of the highest tides in continental Europe make this site "must see" in our region.
I provide the Fast pass to skip the queues at the Abbey.
